VALE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say a traffic stop on Interstate 84 in eastern Oregon yielded a surprise: five pounds of heroin packed into two Valentine's Day teddy bear gift baskets.
Lt. Gregg Hastings said Monday the heroin was valued at $200,000.
The spokesman says two young women from Phoenix, Ariz., were arrested for investigation of unlawful possession and distribution of a controlled substance and booked into the Malheur County Jail.
Sonla Marquez-Lozano, 22, and Yedid Zamudio-Vazquez, 20, are facing charges of unlawful possession and distribution of a controlled substance.
Hastings says a senior trooper stopped the Honda Accord with Arizona license plates for failing to signal lane changes last Wednesday.
