50 Kilograms of Heroin Found in Apple Truck

JAMMU, INDIA - This isn’t your typical rotten apple tale—no Evil Queens were involved in the making of this story. Unfortunately, this apple tale involves shipments of the coveted fall staple being used for nefarious dealings. The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) of Jammu recovered 50 kg (110 pounds) of heroin in a Delhi-bound truck filled with apple boxes.

“Based on specific information, a team of the NCB intercepted an apple-laden truck coming from Sopore on the November 5 evening at Ban Toll Plaza on the Jammu-Udhampur highway. The truck was brought to Narwal Fruit Mandi. Upon search, 50 packets of heroin were found concealed in three wooden boxes,” Virender Yadav, NCB, Zonal Director, Jammu, told local news source The Tribune India.
