Two Claremont residents were found in possession of 180 bags of heroin. Vermont State Police say in a press release that 40 year old James Silvers Jr. and 40 year old Nichole Dubaniewicz, both of Claremont, were stopped for multiple motor vehicle infractions on Interstate 91 in Dummerston earlier this month.
After being stopped, police seized the vehicle to apply for a search warrant and released both Silvers and Dubaniewicz. Police later executed the search warrant on the vehicle and found 180 bags of heroin.
Last week, Silvers and Dubaniewicz turned themselves in to the Brattleboro barracks of Vermont State Police.
They were charged with possession, trafficking, and importation of heroin, and both are being held on $2500 bail at Springfield’s Southern State Correctional Facility. The two are due in court on January 19th.
