What started as a routine vehicle stop turned into a drug related arrest last week in Plainville.
After pulling over a vehicle on George St on November 21, Patrolman Todd Holbrook’s check of the vehicle showed that the registered owner of the car had an active warrant but was not in the car.
The owner of the car, Tracy Augustine of 51 George Street, Plainville was found at her home hiding in a crawl space by Holbrook with assistance from Patrolwoman Julie Barrett. In addition, there were drug related items in plain site around the house.
Detective James Floyd was called to the house to assist with the investigation and execute a search warrant.
Augustine was arrested and charged with possession of Class A drug with intent to distribute, possession of Class B drug with intent to distribute, and being present where heroin is kept.
Augustine was held overnight by the Plainville PD and arraigned at Wrentham District Court on November 23.
