High alert

Today's tip for drug smugglers comes from right here in Shasta County, CA: If you're carrying 30 pounds of heroin in a secret compartment in the rear bumper of your car, it's really important that you not get pulled over on a routine traffic stop on Interstate 5.

Extra points: The driver was stopped for tailgating.

Double extra points: He panicked and fled on foot, causing the whole north end of Redding to become a hunting zone for the cops.

Developing story here.
