Massachusetts State Police took four people into custody Friday morning after discovering 1,250 individual bags of heroin marked "Obama Care," authorities said.
According to a post on the department's Facebook page, a trooper spotted a vehicle in Hatfield, Mass., with several violations. Police called on a police K9, Frankie, who located the heroin in the vehicle.
Lt. Daniel Richard, a police spokesman, said each bag of heroin can command anywhere from $7 to $20 in street value. Though this is the first time Richard has seen "Obama Care" stamp on a drug bag, but similar stamps can be used by drug producers as a branding.
