Heroin found in car; 2 city men arrested
Two Baltimore men were arrested yesterday outside a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant after police found 511 bags of heroin in their stolen car.

scales, a calculator, some marijuana and $10,000 in a shoe box in the trunk. Several bags of heroin also were found in the men's clothing and underwear, police said.
