Police Seize 600 Bags of Heroin in Traffic Stop, One Arrested

Lebanon police have seized a hefty amount of heroin and arrested one woman on drug charges. According to police, officers in Lebanon pulled over Ashley Follensbee of South Royalton, Vermont for a traffic stop after an investigation by the NH Attorney General’s Drug Task Force, Hartford Police, and Vermont Detectives into the sale of heroin.

Previously, Follensbee had sold heroin to a confidential informant and police had since received information that she had additional heroin.

When a search warrant was executed on her vehicle, police found 40 bags of heroin along with her 3-year old child. Vermont authorities executed a second search warrant, this time on her home, and found 600 bags of heroin, 4.5 grams of crack cocaine, 20 grams of marijuana, various prescription pills, and more than $1500 in cash.

She was charged  with possession of a controlled drug with intent to sell and sale of a controlled drug, which are both Class B felonies. In addition, she is facing another charge of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.

She was arraigned Thursday and bail was reduced from $100,000 to $5,000 cash or surety.
