DARIEN, Conn. A Norwalk woman was charged with possession of heroin and morphine after her car was stopped in Darien, police said.
Janice Tate, 49, was pulled over Thursday after officers reported seeing her cross over the double yellow line on Tokeneke Road and following too closely to the car in front of her. Tate initially identified herself with a different first name, police said.
Zulu the drug-sniffing dog was brought in to conduct a free air sniff of the car, police said. Police said they found 11 wax paper folds containing white powder that was later determined to be heroin, as well as two pills that were later determined to morphine and a white straw with heroin residue.
Tate admitted that her actual first name is Janice, police said, and she was arrested. She was charged with possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, obtaining drugs illegally and interfering with an officer. She posted $2,500 bond and will appear in court Oct. 12.
It was also determined that Tate was the subject of three outstanding arrest warrants by the Norwalk Police Department on charges of violation of probation. She was processed for these warrants and posted bond.
