NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro police say more than a half-pound of heroin was seized during a traffic stop on Interstate 65 on Tuesday night.

Police stopped the driver of a minivan for speeding near Trinity Lane.

A police dog alerted the smell of narcotics. During a search of the minivan, police say they found heroin in two grease tubes in the rear of the vehicle.

Contreras-Gonzalez is charged with possessing heroin for resale. His bond was set at $82,000.
