Police: Two Women Hit with Heroin Posssession Charges in Tarrytown

They are charged after car is stopped on North Broadway.

Tarrytown Police reported the arrest of two women allegedly found with heroin, or heroin residue, in their possession on North Broadway.

The Greenburgh Drug and Alcohol Task Force informed local police on Jan. 25 at 10:17 p.m. that they had conducted a traffic stop on North Broadway by C-Town.

A license check revealed the driver's license was suspended. After further investigation, officers reported the female driver, 23, of Yorktown Heights, was placed under arrest on charges of aggravated unlicensed operation in third degree and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh.

Additionally a female passenger, a 19-year-old from Ossining, was placed under arrest on a charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh.

Both female defendants were processed and released with a return court date. 

Lieutenant William Herguth reported that the Yorktown Heights woman was found with two ripped waxed bags containing "alleged heroin residue," while the Ossining woman was found with seven waxed bags of alleged heroin.


Warrant Arrest

On Jan. 30 at 10:04 a.m., a 26-year-old man from Mount Kisco, turned himself in at police headquarters for an active bench warrant issued after he didn't show up for his Tarrytown court date.

The judge imposed a $500 cash bail which he posted.

He was originally arrested on North Washington Street with the same Yorktown Heights woman arrested above last November on a charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third and taken to County Jail without bail.

She had been charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree and released on $100 cash bail with a return court date.

Herguth said that the Mount Kisco was found with 14 bags of what police believed to be heroin in his possession. The woman was found at that time two opened waxed bags containing "alleged heroin residue."
