TICONDEROGA A traffic stop early Wednesday morning resulted in the seizure of several thousand dollars worth of heroin, according to Ticonderoga Town Police.

It started when police pulled over a car driven by Zack A. Muroff, 25, of Ticonderoga, at 2:05 a.m.

Inside the vehicle there were allegedly numerous packets of heroin, police said, with a street value of $7,500.

Muroff and passenger Joshua M. Jaenisch, 30, of Crown Point, were both arrested for felony third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Muroff was also charged with misdemeanor second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle.

Both men were arraigned in Ticonderoga Town Court and sent to Essex County Jail when they couldn't pay bail. Muroff's bail was set at $25,000, and Jaenisch's at $20,000.

Ticonderoga Police Chief Mark Johns said in a news release that police believe the heroin was going to be sold locally.

"This is a significant arrest, because of the potential for these drugs to be sold on the streets of Ticonderoga. We have seen a disturbing increase in heroin use locally."

He said arresting officers Sgt. Michael LaVallie and Patrolman Mark Belden called in a canine unit from the Warren County Sheriff's Department to help search for drugs in the car.

"The heroin was concealed in various places throughout the vehicle."

Muroff's automobile was impounded and taken to police headquarters.

Ha, Ha, Ha!!! Good job Ti PD Heroin is such an addicting drug that can ruin your life in a very short period of time. Glad they caught it before it was distributed around town. These 2 scums need to spend some time away anyway. They will never stop. You would think that getting caught selling before would have taught a lesson but apparently not. They deserve to rot!!!!!!! Save our kids from scum like this.
Great Job

How stupid can you be? Driving around a dead town in the middle of the night with a car full of drugs. hahah Stupid junkies. They need to stop letting these creatures off so easily. A little rehab is not going to cure them. Most of them find their best connections in rehab!!!

Watch out all you still out there dealing, your little drug dealing/using circle is getting smaller and smaller. Maybe YOU will be next.

I'm sorry; its "their" business? Correction, when someone feels the need to peddle hardcore drugs into a community filled with children it becomes EVERYONE'S business. And who cares if they got busted? Are you for real? I mean honestly, do you hear yourself? They had over $7,000 worth of heroin in their car how can someone with any kind of intelligence not care?!

And furthermore....I'll even go as far as to say I actually used to be friends with Zack, close friends in fact, but the simple fact of the matter is that man had a chance to make more out of his life and has continued to make wrong decisions time and time again. Unfortunately this decision might just cost him more than he could have imagined.
