Huge Heroin Bust in AL


The Baldwin County Sheriff's office makes what could be the largest heroin bust in Alabama this year.

This is what $2 million worth of illegal drugs looks like.

Authorities seized 13 kilos of cocaine and 10 kilos of heroin during a traffic stop on I-10 last week.

They also confiscated $3,000 in cash.

Investigators say the suspected "drug runner" works for a major cartel.

Jose Lopez is accused of driving drugs from Texas to the east coast.

Police say he tried to hide the drugs in his gas tank.

Investigators say cartels in Mexico and the Middle East are funneling their product into the US at a rapid pace.
