WPD bust man with over 100 heroin bags

WILMINGTON -- Wilmington Police continue their offensive against the heroin trade. They are trying to stem the tide of overdose deaths -- four in two months. Tuesday they showed us their latest haul, more than 100 bags of heroin. It was the result of an undercover drug buy near the Target store off Market Street. Antwyn Beatty of Wilmington was arrested and charged with eight felony counts related to the possession and trafficking of heroin. Officers say the heroin bags had five different stamps on them, apparently intended to reassure or confuse buyers in the midst of this overdose scare.
