Two men and two women are facing felony drug possession charges after being pulled over on Friday night in Flanders during a routine traffic stop by New York State Troopers.
The driver of the car, Jessica Chmielewski, 26, of Riverhead, was stopped at 9:35 p.m. on Flanders Road after Troopers observed her driving erratically onto the shoulder and then back onto the road, according to a press release.
Ms. Chmielewski was found in possession of 1.6 grams of crack cocaine and charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony. Police said such a charge means she intended to sell the drug.
Police said she also failed a field sobriety test and was charged with DWI, driving while her ability was impaired by drugs, and obstructing governmental administration, all misdemeanors.
Additionally, Willie Bryant, 32, and Christyas Williams, 29, both of Riverhead, and Amanda Cross, 23, of Aquebogue were passengers in the car, and each was arrested and charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Troopers said they were also in possession of crack cocaine.
