DELAWARE STATE POLICE BEAT / Two charged with horsing around with haul of heroin on U.S. 13

HARRINGTON, DEL.– The Delaware State Police have arrested two Wilmington men for heroin possession after a traffic stop south of Harrington.

Delaware State Police Master Corporal Gary Fournier reports the arrest which included a large amount of heroin occurred around 1:40 p.m. Sunday November 6, 2016, as a trooper was patrolling the area of South DuPont Highway (US13) and Tower Hill Road, and observed a white Honda Sonata traveling above the posted speed limit. A traffic stop was conducted on the car and upon making contact with the operator, Kurtis S. McIntosh, 21 of Wilmington, an odor of marijuana was detected coming from the vehicle.

Both McIntosh and his passenger, Darrell Law, 43 of Wilmington, were asked to exit the vehicle while a search was conducted. Upon conducting the search, a plastic bag under the front passenger’s seat containing 1,833 bags of heroin (27.50 grams) was located.

I guess my reading and comprehension skills need a little work. I don't understand the "horsing around" part of the headline. Can someone please explain it to me.

I'm pretty sure if I was transporting that much heroin I wouldn't be lighting up a joint!!These two are clearly geniuses!

4:21 I think it is a little bit of word play. Years ago Heroin was also called horse also there is/was a horse racing facility in Harrington.

Thanks, 6:01, but it still makes no sense, it's not funny, and whoever wrote that headline should have their journalism card withdrawn.

Good to see more "horse" off the streets, though.

Heroin was referred to as 'horse' in the 60's and early 70'so (slang)

It is a technical term that they use similar to the words "scrap with" to indicate a physical altercation between an officer and a suspect.

tThis sounds exactly like a scam that was attempted on us last week. Supposedly my grandson was arrested. What I don't understand is why wasn't the guy/s arrested. MSP had a phone number & location for the perps. Msp even called the number.
So they're left to continue attempted scams.
