Two Phoenix women were arrested in Oregon after state police found heroin hidden in Valentine teddy bear baskets in their trunk.

Sonla Marquez-Lozano, 22, and her passenger, Yedid Zamudio-Vazquez, 20, were booked into Malheur County Jail on charges of unlawful possession and distribution of a controlled substance - heroin.

The arrests happened on Jan. 30 after an Oregon State Patrol senior trooper stopped their vehicle off the westbound lanes of Interstate 84 for failing to signal lane changes.
