Heroin, marijuana found

The Racine County Sheriff's Office confiscated the pictured 122.5 grams of heroin mixed with a fentanyl, as well as marijuana, money and phones after stopping a vehicle that was speeding in a Racine County construction zone along Interstate 94. 

A Racine County Sheriff’s Office deputy was monitoring traffic for speeding violations on northbound I-94 at Highway 20 and observed a silver 2019 Toyota Camry reportedly traveling 81 mph in a posted 60 mph construction zone.

At the time, construction workers were present and actively working, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.
