A traffic stop in Blair County on Monday resulted in drug charges being filed against two people from Pittsburgh.
Just before 3:30 yesterday afternoon State Police pulled a vehicle over on I-99 in Antis Township. When they observed what they are calling indications of criminal activity, they called a drug detection canine to the scene. That led to a search of the vehicle which turned up a large cardboard box in the trunk. In the box, troopers found 100,000 individually stamped bags of heroin with a street value of between 1and 1.5 million dollars.
The driver of the vehicle, 27 year old Amanda O’Kelley and a passenger, 44 year old Derrick Samuels were taken into custody.
O’Kelley’s six month old daughter was also in the vehicle and was released to Blair County Children and Youth services.
