Police in Montville, Connecticut say they found 199 bags of heroin in the car of a man who drove into an elementary school parking lot Sunday night.

The 40-year-old man was acting suspicious, which led police to use a police dog to sniff the outside of the vehicle. The dog’s reaction led to a search, which led to the heroin, police said, according to The Day of New London, Connecticut.

The man was arrested and charged with possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, and possession of narcotics with 1,500 feet of a school.

Montville is a town of about 20,000 about 9 miles north of New London.
