3 charged after 4 pounds of heroin found in vehicle

    Three Charlotte men are accused of trafficking heroin after authorities found four pounds of the drug hidden in a spare tire during a traffic stop.

    Adolfo Guzman Lopez, 31, Beltran Rodriquez Gerardo, 27, and Irving Eduardo Rodriquez-Munguia, 20, were all being held in the Gaston County jail on Tuesday. Authorities have placed an immigration detainer on the men.

    The men were charged Monday after a trooper with the N.C. Highway Patrol pulled over a vehicle for following too closely. The traffic stop was made on northbound Interstate 85 near the U.S. 74 exit in Gaston County.

    Trooper Ray Blanton said the driver, identified as Rodriquez Gerardo, didn’t have a license or other valid identification. As the men talked, Blanton said he grew suspicious and asked to search the vehicle. The driver consented and troopers found three packages of heroin in the tire, Blanton said.

    Blanton said the amount of the heroin found led to the trafficking charge.

    Lopez was being held on a $5 million bond, while the other suspects were given $2.5 million bonds.

    My name is Jason Jones. I'm from Rochester, MN and I'm 35 years old. I scrap metal and work as grounds keeper at a local trailer park. In the winter, I shovel a bunch of driveways and sidewalks to make some extra money and to stay busy. In my free time, I try to find interesting articles about the war on drugs that I can post on Drugs-Forum, so that the information can reach a wider audience.

    Thats a tad unfortunate! Surely if you were driving with that amount of heroin in the boot of your car you would make sure that your driving was absolutely perfect so that you wouldn't attract attention??

    Lucky cop =P
