1,000 Baggies of Heroin Found in I-78 Traffic Stop in Lower Saucon, Police Say

A traffic stop by a Pennsylvania state trooper on I-78 west in Lower Saucon Township Tuesday afternoon led to the discovery of 20 bricks or 1,000 baggies containing heroin and felony charges against two residents of Somerset County, N.J., according to a story published by WFMZ Channel 69 that cites police sources.

The news website reported Friday that Tynika L. Moses, 42, and Winston J. King, 40, were stopped because Moses’s car’s windows were allegedly so tinted that the interior of her vehicle couldn’t be seen, and that the trooper was given consent to search the car after he allegedly observed “multiple” signs of criminal activities.

According to county court records, Moses and King are both charged with one count each of felony possession with intent to deliver and misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Following a preliminary arraignment before District Judge Alicia Zito Moses was jailed in lieu of $50,000 bail and King was jailed in lieu of $75,000 bail, records say.
