New York State Police on Feb. 20 arrested two Broome County residents who were found in a parked car that police allege contained a number of drugs and paraphernalia. The car was parked suspiciously in a lot in Johnson City, according to a state police spokesperson. A trooper stopped to investigate the parked vehicle, which led to numerous drug charges against the man and woman found in the vehicle.
The details of how the police were authorized to search the occupants or to make a full search of the car is not reported at this time. In any event, police claim that they found heroin, either on the suspects or in their car. They say that a "subsequent search" of the two, including also the car, resulted in seizing 36 wax envelopes of heroin, about 2.5 grams of meth and various items claimed to be used in manufacturing methamphetamine.
