Four Orange County residents are facing felony drug possession charges following a traffic stop, State Police said.
The four were pulled over in the Town of Crawford on Tuesday and police searching their vehicle uncovered 100 packages of heroin, a police report said. Arrested were Kallie M. Degroat, 22; Matthew S. Hagan, 25; Wayne M. Fields, 21; and Michael J. Ross, 27, all from the hamlet of Pine Bush in Crawford.
State Police said a search of their home at 44 Main St. in Pine Bush resulted in additional drugs being seized.
All four were charged with third-degree felony criminal possession of a controlled substance and fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both felonies, as well as seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor.
Degroat and Ross were released on their own recognizance, and Fields and Hagan were sent to the Orange County Jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 secured bond. All four are expected to appear in court next week, police said.
None of them could be reached for comment.
