Heroin Bust at NB Exit on I-75

Two Toledo men have been arrested in a bust that netted six kilograms of heroin.

WTOL 11 reports DEA agents arrested Ricardo Rivera, 40, and Andres Mendez, 25, after stopping a car driven by Mendez near North Baltimore. Officers discovered six kilograms of heroin in the car, which has a street value of around $3 million.

Both Mendez and Rivera have been charged with distribution of heroin.

It does not appear that the heroin’s final destination was North Baltimore, with the bust going down in a random fashion, when the opportunity presented itself, for the traffic stop.
