The following information was supplied by the Monroe Police Department. No arrested person is guilty until so judged in a court of law.
A traffic stop on Barn Hill Road on July 26 led to the arrest of a Squire Road woman for possession of heroin.
Kylemarie Claflin, 23, was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of narcotics. She was also issued written warnings for failure to have a tint sticker from the Department of Motor Vehicles as proof of inspection and failure to replace a mutilated license plate. She was released on $2,500 bond for an Aug. 3 court date.
A officer had stopped Claflin's 2003 Chrysler Sebring at around 11:01 a.m. because of its tinted windows and a rear license plate that was dented, scuffed and unreadable, according to the report.
Police said Claflin had glassy eyes, constricted pupils and appeared to be visibly nervous, breathing heavy — her hands and arms shaking. Clafin said the plate was bent in an accident a week ago, when someone hit her from behind, according to police.
When asked if there was anything in the car, police said Clafin appeared unusually nervous. Police canine, Gunner, was brought in and did a positive air scent on the car.
Police said 17 folds containing a substance field testing positive for heroin and three empty syringes were found in the center console; and that a full syringe and another fold of a subtance testing positive for heroin were found under the driver's seat. The police report did not identify the clear liquid in the needle.
