Omaha, Neb. — The Nebraska State Patrol says a Texas man has been arrested after an undercover investigator found 11 pounds of heroin on him, including some strapped to his torso.

The patrol says the investigator was at the bus station near downtown Omaha when he saw a man wearing a jacket at 6 a.m. Monday, while temperatures were in the 70s.

The patrol says the man agreed to a search of his bag and backpack, which turned up two clear-wrapped packages of drugs. The patrol says eight more packages wrapped in a band around his torso were found. The estimated street value of the heroin is $250,000.

Investigators say the 25-year-old man from El Paso, Texas, was headed to Iowa City. He’s charged with possession of 140 grams or more of heroin and having no drug tax stamp. He remains in the Douglas County jail.
