What is it about the number 89 and heroin? Last year, 89 pounds of heroin were seized in Tucson, while two years prior, a man was allegedly found with, yup, 89 bags of heroin tied around his penis. The latest member of the 89 Club is a pregnant woman who shoved 89 bags of junk into her junk. Or in the fancy terminology of a New Jersey newspaper, her “body cavity.”
Borough police who stopped a man and his pregnant passenger on a minor motor-vehicle violation Friday suspected there were drugs in their car. But they didn’t find anything until they viewed videotape taken by a surveillance camera which caught the woman in the back seat of the police cruiser shoving what turned out to be 89 bags of heroin into a body cavity.

The key to getting away with smuggling drugs is to carry 90 pounds/bags/buckets/gallons, apparently. Then you’re free to chase the dragon without complications.
