Wilmington Teen Caught with 3,500 (!) Bags of Heroin


3,582 bags to be precise. That sounds like a lot, but as the above photo demonstrates, one could probably fit this into a backpack. Because the value of the heroin being hoarded by this Wilmington 16-year-old was listed at $35,820, I have deduced that these bags are in fact dime bags. The boy has been charged with possession with intent to deliver in “Tier 4 Quantity.” There are only 5 tiers. [Delaware Online]
