JUNEAU, Alaska — Juneau police say they arrested a 25-year-old woman at the Juneau International Airport on suspicion of transporting $110,000 in heroin after a return flight from Seattle.

Jessica Beck faces a second-degree drug misconduct charge.

The Juneau Police Department says in a release that the Juneau resident was arrested at about 9:20 a.m. on Thursday as she was returning from Seattle.
