Monson Woman Arrested With Fentanyl Powder And Crack Cocaine
A Monson woman faces multiple charges after police found her with Xanax, Fentanyl powder, and crack cocaine.
Somerset County Sheriff's Deputies executed a search warrant Saturday afternoon for Destiny Alton's motor vehicle and her property after seeing her driving a car with a suspended license. They attempted to get the 37-year-old to pull over, but she allegedly refused to stop at first. When she finally did stop the car on Spring Hill Road in Palmyra, she and a passenger in the vehicle allegedly switched places.
Drug agents assisted in searching the vehicle, seizing approximately 98 grams of fentanyl powder, a small amount of crack cocaine, 41 Xanax pills, nearly $5,000 in cash, digital scales, drug related documentation, and drug related paraphernalia. In addition, deputies seized her 2009 Chevy Aveo.
Alton was initially charged with aggravated trafficking in fentayl, which was elevated to 'aggravated' because of the amount of the drug seized in the search. The approximate street value of the fentanyl is $18,000.
Her passenger, 31-year-old Andrew Veysey of Palmyra, was summonsed for operating a motor vehicle while suspended.
