"Heroin rush hour" has some telltale signs in northern Kentucky, like a car filled with people in their pajamas around 9 or 10 a.m.

That's what police in Fort Thomas say.

The Kentucky Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1UgXQJO ) reports they have launched a three-officer Heroin Interdiction Team to get heroin off the roadways

Sgt. Chris Goshorn says officers have noticed addicts tend to wake up and drive to nearby Cincinnati for their next fix around 9 or 10 a.m.

With many addicts pooling their gas money together for the trip north, Officer Derek Faught says a car full of people in their pajamas can tip investigators to check for an intoxicated driver at the wheel.

Fort Thomas police say their anti-heroin unit has made 143 drug charges since it was launched in February.
