SAN BERNARDINO — Police discovered about $3 million in black tar heroin Monday after a man and woman were arrested at the end of a two-hour standoff with a SWAT team, police say.

Now authorities are trying to determine if the two - Frank Javier Cardona, 33, of San Bernardino and Dulce Judith Valdez, 30, of Tijuana, have ties to any Mexican drug cartels, said Lt. Gwen Waters.
