A Greenwich woman and a Stamford man face drug charges after police smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the car in which they were sitting at the end of a Greenwich cul-de-sac, according to police.
Lauren A. Bria, 27, of 43 Gerry St., and Jeffrey A. Saunders, 29, of 195 Long Ridge Road, Stamford, were inside a stationary gray Acura TSX on Gerry Street on the night of Sept. 10 when investigators approached the vehicle, smelled marijuana, and ordered them out of the car, police said.
Police found Bria in possession of two wax folds containing a brown, powder-like substance, which later tested positive for heroin, police said. Bria also had a cut red straw with brown powdery residue on it, and a search of the car revealed a bundle of heroin in the center console, police said. She was charged with possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia.
