Police pulled over a Pennsylvania woman on Mt. Airy Road for what they thought was a broken headlight. Instead, the woman was found to be allegedly returning 114 small bags of heroin to her Irvington dealer because the drug was too weak for her taste, according to MyCentralJersey.com.

Heather Geibel, 25, of Sherman Dale., Pa., was pulled over in Bernards last Friday around 10 a.m., a report on MyCentralJersey.com said. The woman gave police permission to search her car after they saw drug paraphernalia in the vehicle, according to the report.

It was the second time in several weeks that police pulled a motorist in Bernards over for a motor vehicle infraction and discovered a drug stash instead. Thomas Forniel, 30, of Newark, was pulled over on Nov. 21 for an automobile light problem. Police allegedly found 25 bricks of heroin, weighing nearly a pound, in Forniel's vehicle.

Geibel was taken to the Somserset County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail, according to a report on MyCentralJersey.com. She was charged with heroin possession with intent to distribute the substance, the report said.
