A Millville man was arrested by State Police last week after a traffic stop that resulted in the seizure of heroin.

State Police said Thomas Brown, 37, was pulled over by Trooper Shane Furlong at 12:44 p.m. Aug. 9 for a traffic violation in Fairfield Township.

Furlong discovered Brown had a criminal warrant out of Cumberland County. Police said Furlong also found 318 wax folds of heroin, estimated to be worth $1,590.

Brown was charged with possession of heroin, possession of heroin with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was taken to the Cumberland County jail pending a detention hearing.
