Pittsburgh police probe drugs found in old cruiser

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh police are trying to figure out how some heroin and crack cocaine wound up in an out-of-service patrol car.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (http://bit.ly/19ERKcH ) reports the investigation began after one of its reporters contacted city police on Tuesday night.

The newspaper cites an internal report which shows 12 individual-dose bags of heroin and a small amount of crack cocaine were found June 4 when someone was cleaning out the car. A utility knife and 9mm bullet were also found.

Assistant Chief George Trosky issued a statement confirming he has begun an investigation, but says an initial review shows the car is more than 10 years old and has been out-of-service in a garage for at least six months.
