The street value of the heroin is estimated by the Sheriff’s Office at between $8,000 and $10,000.

At the time of his arrest, Zupokfska was out on bail from a previous drug charge from February.

The Sheriff’s Office reported that more arrests in connection with the case were expected.

On Tuesday, Libby said there was an ongoing investigation into the case but could not elaborate or say if more arrests were expected.
