Entry Description

Jasper County-An early morning traffic stop, today at approximately 8:00 A.M., for speeding on I-65 resulted in the seizure of over five pounds of suspected heroin.

Senior Trooper Fred Trammel made a traffic stop on a Chevrolet Impala on I-65 south bound at the 205 mile marker (Remington exit) for going 97 miles per hour in a well posted 70 miles per hour zone. During the traffic stop the driver, identified as Pedro A Burgos, 26 of Miami, Florida, had inconsistencies in his story and actions that made Trammel suspicious of criminal activity.

Trooper Trammel conducted a free air search with his K-9 partner Rykr and obtained a positive reaction. A subsequent search of the Chevrolet yielded a large amount of suspected heroin. The heroin was in four packages that were duct taped and located in the front passenger seat back panel.

The street value of the heroin is approximately $150,000.

Burgos was taken to Jasper County Jail where he is charged with:

1. Dealing a Narcotic Drug-Class A Felony
2. Possession of a Narcotic Drug-Class C Felony
3. Speeding 97/70 an infraction
