Saco police charged a Biddeford man with trafficking in heroin after a tip led police to pull over his car.

Saco police learned that a man driving a beige 2000 Buick Lesabre was likely headed into town Thursday at 5:22 p.m. and that he had heroin with him.

In all, police seized 4.6 grams of heroin.
