RAY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a routine traffic stop in the Adirondacks has resulted in a drug bust after troopers found 500 bags of heroin in the vehicle.

The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reported that three St. Lawrence County residents were arrested on drug charges after troopers pulled over a Hyundai Santa Fe on Route 86 in Ray Brook Tuesday evening. Police say the vehicle was stopped for an unsafe lane change and an obstructed license plate.

The driver was 24-year-old Jordan Thomas of Potsdam. The passengers were 23-year-old Gerald Dissottle Jr. of Norwood and 31-year-old Allen Oshier of Canton. Police say Dissottle had 500 bags of heroin in his pants. A vehicle search turned up some crack cocaine, marijuana and a digital scale.

The three were charged with various drug offenses.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
