DOVER, Del.- Dover police say a late Wednesday night traffic stop led to a large heroin bust and the arrests of two people.

Police said that at around 10:16 p.m., officers pulled over 29-year-old Amber Plum and 23-year-old Philip Wooten, both of Harrington, during a traffic stop on Route 13 at Roosevelt Avenue. 

Officers said they found 434 bags of heroin packaged for sale inside the vehicle.

The pair also had 11.2 grams of raw heroin packaged in two larger bags, according to police. Police said if the raw heroin was packaged the same way as the other bags, it would have yielded another 560 bags for a total of 994 bags.

Officers said they also found drug paraphernalia, prescription pills and $1,370 in cash.

Plum and Wooten were both charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, second-degree conspiracy, possession of oxycodone and related charges.

Plum was committed to the Baylor's Women's Correctional Institution in default of $55,250 secured bail.

Wooten was committed to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in default of $55,250 secured bail.
