LANCASTER, Pa (WHTM) – A traffic stop led to police finding more than 400 bags of heroin in a vehicle according to the Lancaster County District Attorney’s office. 

Police said they initially pulled over a vehicle being driven by Sadi Corretger, 28, for a window tint violation and having an illegal windshield banner on Saturday on North Wolf Street in Manheim. 

Police spotted a large amount of cash rubber-banded together in the center console of the vehicle. They said Corretger was already known to police because of previous drug issues. Also, a nearby resident recently reported to police that Corretger’s vehicle was involved in a drug sale by their property. Because of these factors, police called in a K-9 to help search the vehicle. 

K9 Casper alerted police to drugs by the passenger-side door. 

Police searched the vehicle and said they found a bag containing three brick-shaped packages with bundles of heroin. The 420 bags were stamped with a “HULK” brand. Police said they also found $1,047 in cash in the vehicle.

Corretger is charged with possession with intent to deliver, resisting arrest and driving on a suspended license. He is being held at Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $250,000 bail.
