On Saturday at approximately 4:20 p.m. Connecticut State Police were conducting a traffic stop. As troopers approached the vehicle, they identified the operator as 37-year-old Richard Bourey, who they knew had a suspended license.
The front seat passenger and vehicle owner was identified as 33-year-old Samantha Holly.
Both occupants allegedly gave inconsistent stories of where they were traveling from.
After deploying a drug-detecting K-9, it strongly alerted officers to the front pants area of Holly and a female trooper subsequently located approximately 20.4 grams of prepackaged “crack” cocaine hidden on the woman.
During a search of the vehicle, approximately $892 was also located and seized.
Bourey was taken into custody and released on a $500,00 non-surety bond. He was charged with Operating a Motor Vehicle While Under Suspension.
Holly was taken into custody for Possession of “Crack” Cocaine and Possession of “Crack” Cocaine With Intent to Sell.
Holly was processed and held on a $50,000 bond.
