Police: Woman left $100,000 worth of heroin outside Bensalem middle school

- A woman is in custody after police say she left $100,000 worth of heroin inside of a backpack outside of a Bensalem Middle School.

Back on December 20th, officers investigated a call for a suspicious backpack that was found that morning by Bensalem School District employees in the rear parking lot of Cecilia Snyder Middle School.

Police found the bag contained four ‘bricks’ of heroin that amounted to approximately 10,000 doses with a street value of $100,000.

After reviewing nearby surveillance footage, police discovered a Toyota Corolla with New Jersey tags had been in the area where the bag was found. On January 10, officers stopped the same vehicle in Bensalem and arrested 26-year-old Natasha Willis.

Police say Willis, a Bensalem resident, admitted to possessing and accidentally placing the bag outside of her car behind the school on the morning it was found.

Willis has been charged with possession with intent to deliver narcotics, and related offenses.

She was arraigned and bail was set at 10% of $750,000.

Police noted that the heroin was not intended for the school, and no students were endangered thanks to quick action from school employees and police.
