A Pittsburgh man was arrested after police found a brick of heroin in the vehicle he was riding in.
Thomas Goodwine, 22, was observed by the Harrison County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force to make what they believed to be four suspected drug transactions.
Members of the Task Force then conducted an investigative traffic stop in Nutter Fort, and say Goodwine was in the passenger seat.
When police approached the vehicle, Goodwine leaned over the driver’s side while reaching into the rear part of his pants and into his seat, police said. A female was showing her hands to officers in the driver’s seat.
Police then found a gun in the vehicle, removed the female driver and Goodwine and placed them in handcuffs.
A brick of heroin, which is approximately 50 stamps, was found in plain view in the passenger area of the vehicle, police said.
During processing, police also found one stamp of heroin in Goodwine’s pocket.
Goodwine is currently in the North Central Regional Jail in lieu of $200,000 bond.
