OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Two men are facing drug trafficking charges in Oklahoma County after authorities say they were found hiding about six pounds of heroin in their shoes.

Jhonathan Romero and Marco Berreda were arrested March 8th by Oklahoma City police at the Union Bus Station while the two were en route to New York City.

Police approached 16-year-old Berreda, and officers say they found two large bundles in the teen's shoes containing three pounds of what turned out to be heroin.

A man identified by authorities as Romero also had about three pounds of heroin on him that were shaped in the form of shoe soles.
