Hartford Police Seize 1,000 Bags Of Heroin, Arrest Suspect

HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – Hartford narcotics detectives have arrested a man suspected dealing heroin from his vehicle and seized 1,000 bags of the drug stamped “great job.”

Luis Santos was arrested Wednesday and charged with the possession and sale of narcotics.

An arrest warrant was issued for the 45-year-old Santos after investigators learned Wednesday that he had a large amount of heroin inside his car. Police say detectives stopped Santos’ vehicle and found the drugs.

The investigation also led police to a hotel room in Manchester where they found more than $2,000 and drug packaging material. A search of Santos’ Hartford home turned up roughly $7,000 in cash.
