Traffic stop leads to drug bust on Route 222 in Kutztown

Police: Heroin found in car's engine compartment

A traffic stop on Route 222 in Berks County led to an unexpected find for a Pennsylvania State Police trooper.

The trooper pulled over a car for crossing the yellow line multiple times as it traveled south on Route 222 in Kutztown late Saturday night, according to court documents released Monday.

The driver, Angel Concepcion-Rosario, gave the trooper consent to search his car, and a PSP K9 alerted the trooper to the scent of drugs in the engine compartment, according to court documents.

The trooper then searched under the hood and found 200 grams of heroin in the car's engine compartment, police said.

Concepcion-Rosario, 46, no address provided, was charged with various drug offenses and committed to the Berks County Jail on $75,000 bail.
