Immigrants Held In Alleged Black Tar Heroin Ring

MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Eight illegal Mexican immigrants swept up in a Moon Township raid are charged with trafficking in a rare type of heroin in Pittsburgh and its western suburbs, including parts of Beaver County.

WTAE Channel 4's news exchange partner, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, reported that local police and state drug agents seized nearly 500 balloonsof black tar heroin worth about $50,000 on the street.

The state Attorney General's office said agents raided an apartment in the Thorn Run apartment complex on Lee Drive on March 23.

Authorities said they found 6 ounces of black tar heroin, money and various records about how the drugs were sold in the apartment.

The arrests are part of a larger investigation into an organization whose members are active in Pittsburgh, Moon, Bellevue, Ambridge, Center, Monaca and Rochester, authorities said.
