During routine traffic patrol, officers came into contact with the suspect who was believed to have an open warrant. The officer observed the suspect pick up a syringe which contained a liquid. The officer attempted to gain control of the suspect whereupon the suspect actively resisted arrest and caused both the officer and the suspect to trip over curbing several times. Upon gaining control of the suspect, the syringe's contents were examined and found to be Heroin. The suspect was transported to VCBJ without further incident.
