Masontown police Chief Joe Ryan said his officers seized 14 grams of uncut heroin during a traffic stop late Wednesday – the equivalent of about 1,000 stamp bags of heroin.

Ryan said said the drugs were discovered during a traffic stop on North Main Street around 10:20 p.m.

He said that Officer Tom O'Barto and Sgt. Scott Miller were assisted during the stop by K-9 Officer Mike Yeager and police dog Brony who alerted on the car indicating that controlled substances were present.

Police then found the uncut heroin in possession of a passenger inside the car, Ryan said.

“This is a very significant amount of uncut heroin,” Ryan said, noting that the street value of the drugs is about $20,000. “Brony immediately recognized the scent and our officers discovered the drugs shortly after that.”

He said that the incident remains under investigation and that charges are pending.
