Suspect likely to go free after police mistakenly burn huge stash of heroin

Pittsburgh law enforcement wrongly thought the case had been closed, while in fact it was taken over by federal prosecutors. The defense for Tiona Jones, 31, hinges on whether or not the search of her purse during a traffic stop was legal.
