Three people were charged with possession of heroin Thursday after police found bags of the substance in a vehicle, and in the bra of one of its occupants, Wayne Police reported.
Officer Vincent Ricciardelli stopped a vehicle on Route 23 North near Packanack Lake Road shortly after 10:30 p.m. for having tinted front windows, a police report on the incident states.
One of the vehicle’s occupants, Gregory Babcock, 37, of Montague, was asked to exit the vehicle after Ricciardelli noticed he was moving around in his seat, the report states. Three bags of heroin stamped “it’s party time” fell to the ground when Babcock exited the vehicle; several bags of heroin were on the seat he was sitting on, according to the report. Babcock was sitting in the driver's side rear passenger's seat.
During a search of the vehicle, Ricciardelli found 18 bags with heroin in them, several syringes, two bags of crack cocaine, an aluminum cap with heroin residue in it and a cotton ball on the floor of the front passenger’s side of the car, the incident report states.
Police said they found Suboxone in passenger Cindy Lou Vandermark’s purse.
When asked by police if she had anything else on her, Vandermark, 31 of Franklin, said yes and removed 30 bags of heroin, a crack pipe, and a bag with crack in it from her bra, Ricciardelli reported.
Babcock was charged with possession of heroin, possession of crack cocaine, and possession of syringes.
Vandermark was charged with possession of heroin, possession of crack cocaine, and possession of Suboxone.
