Troopers seize heroin, meth bound for Cordova

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Anchorage
Type: Drug interdiction
On 6/21/12 investigators with the Alaska State Troopers, Western Alaska Alcohol and Narcotics Team, contacted 21-year-old Enrique Lino, of Las Cruces, N.M., at the Anchorage airport while he was waiting for his flight to Cordova. During the contact investigators informed Lino that he was being detained pending application for a search warrant. Lino attempted to run from investigators and then proceeded to resist officers as he was detained. AST applied for and was granted a warrant to search Lino and his baggage. Pursuant to the search warrant investigators seized approximately 2 ounces of black tar heroin and approximately 1.5 ounces of methamphetamines, which were destined for Cordova. The heroin has a street value in Anchorage of approximately $29,000. The methamphetamine has a street value in Anchorage of approximately $10,000. The value of both would be slightly more in Cordova. Lino was transported to the Anchorage jail where his bail was set at $50,000 cash plus a court-approved third party. Investigation continues.
