QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a traffic stop on an upstate New York highway results in the discovery nearly 1,000 baggies of heroin and the arrests of two people.

Troopers say they pulled over a vehicle for speeding Tuesday as it traveled south on Interstate 87, the Adirondack Northway, in the Warren County town of Queensbury, 50 miles north of Albany.

Officials say a state police dog was brought in to search the vehicle and detected drugs. Troopers say more than 900 individual bags of heroin and a bag containing 12 grams of the drug were found inside the car.

Troopers say they charged a 24-year-old woman from Glens Falls and a 31-year-old man from Albany with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Both are being held in the county jail for lack of bail.
