A traffic stop by Utica Police led to officers finding nearly two-ounces of heroin and more than four-ounces of methamphetamine. Now, the driver and two passengers face charges of possession and intent to sell.

The traffic stopped happened just after 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning on the 600 block of Bleecker Street. Officers say no only was the backseat passenger acting suspiciously, they could see what appeared to be a tied-off plastic baggy on the floor of the vehicle containing a substance. A subsequent search of the vehicle would lead to police finding 130 grams of methamphetamine in the vehicle and 50 grams of heroin.

Police charged all three occupants - Michael Dyer, 39, of Remsen, Brittany Lopez, 32, of Remsen, and Joshua Williams, 29, of Blossvale, with the following:

  • Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 2nd—Methamphetamine
  • Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 3rd—intent to sell
