Southold Town Police report the arrest of a Greenport woman for drug possession Saturday in Mattituck.
Police said Stephanie Wright, 19, was pulled over in the Mattituck shopping plaza Saturday at about 3:20 p.m. for failing to yield the right of way and excessive window tint.
“Further investigation revealed that Wright was in possession of twenty seven Xanax pills,” police said in a press release issued early this morning. She did not have a prescription for the pills, police said.
Wright was arrested on a charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance as well as traffic infractions. She was released on bail for a later court date, police said.
Editor’s note: A criminal charge is an accusation. By law, a person charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
