$10,000 in heroin found in shrubbery near Green Lake home

A curious and keen-eyed Green Lake resident found more than $10,000 worth of  heroin hidden in nearby shrubbery after watching two different people search the bushes on two different days, police said.

According to Seattle police, the resident observed a car pull up to a planting strip on Thursday and watched as one man got out and began searching through the bushes only to leave empty-handed.

Then again on Saturday, a different car pulled up to the same planting strip and a man once again searched through the shrubbery, but in vain.

Piqued by curiosity, the resident searched in the area and found  a bag hidden in the brambles that was later determined to contain 113 grams of heroin valued at $10,000, according to police.
