Two people were nabbed for heroin possession during a traffic stop on Danbury Road in Wilton, according to Wilton Police.
Dimitrios G. Tsimis, 32, of Norwalk and Shaina L. Piermattel, 28, of Danbury, were busted when officers stopped their vehicle on Feb. 14 for a moving violation on Danbury Road, said Lt. Robert S. Kluk.
During the stop, officers noticed three wax folds and a cut straw with powder residue under Piermattel's right thigh, Kluk said.
A search of the vehicle turned up crack cocaine and a heroin pipe, he added.
Tsimis, who failed a field sobriety test, was charged with possession of narcotics and DUI. Piermattel was charged with possession of narcotics and tampering with evidence after officers found her hiding additional drugs during a body search at police headquarters, Kluk said.
Tsimis was released on $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear Feb. 26. Piermattel was released on $7,500 bond and is scheduled to appear on Feb. 27.
