Police said a local woman was arrested Wednesday after a drug-sniffing dog detected drugs in the car she was riding in.
Melanie York, 34, was charged with possessing drugs for which she had no prescription, Wilton police officer Andrew Hardy.
Hardy stopped James Young-Dumont, 29, of New Gloucester on Munson Road and arrested him on a charge of driving with a suspended license, Wilton Police Chief Heidi Wilcox said.
Hardy called for Cpl. Christopher Chase of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department and his dog, Abbie, who detected drugs in the 2009 Nissan Ultima, she said.
York had five prescription drugs with her and could not produce prescriptions for at least two of them, Hardy said. She also had marijuana, he said.
York was released from Franklin County Detention Center on Thursday on $100 cash bail. She has a court appearance scheduled for March 12.
Young-Dumont was charged with driving after suspension. He was released Thursday on $1,500 unsecured bail with a court appearance scheduled March 12.
