It happened Tuesday near East 79th Street and Addison.

A report shows Officer Donald Kopchak was finishing one traffic stop, and he chased down another car. Fifth District officers tell 19 Action News one person in the car had a large chunk worth of heroin packaged into what's called a brick. Plus, several other smaller chunks of heroin.
