3 charged when I-91 stop nets heroin
One had bags in mouth, purse, pants and body cavity
GREENFIELD — A local woman faces charges of heroin distribution after an Interstate 91 traffic stop.
Cyerra Weimer, 19, whose address in court records was given as the Days Inn, pleaded innocent to charges of possession of heroin with intent to distribute, and conspiracy to violate drug laws, Tuesday in Greenfield District Court.
The Days Inn manager says that Weimer does not live at the motel although she had stayed there.
She was a passenger in a car stopped on the highway for following too closely to the next vehicle at about 3:35 p.m. Monday.
Trooper Noah Pack was parked between the north and south lanes of the highway when he saw a northbound Pontiac with Vermont plates less than two car lengths behind the next car, according to his arrest report.
Pack pulled the car over and the front seat passenger began “frantically reaching into her lap,” while the driver and a backseat passenger began “vigorously texting,” he wrote.
The driver, Anthony Jackman, first told Pack they were coming back from West Springfield, where they had been visiting his father, the trooper wrote. Jackman identified the front seat passenger, but said he didn’t know the man in the rear seat, wrote Pack.
Outside of the vehicle, Jackman admitted that the three had gone to Holyoke to buy heroin, and said that Weimer gave him two bags of heroin for the ride and was hiding more of the drug in her pants, wrote Pack.
When Pack confronted Weimer, she spit one bag of heroin out of her mouth and handed it to the trooper, he wrote. She then told him she had bought 15 bags of the drug, wrote Pack.
When Pack told Weimer a female trooper would be called in to strip search her, she voluntarily retrieved several bags of heroin from her pants, as well as a broken crack pipe, and handed them over, according to Pack. After police found syringes in the car and two more bags of heroin and several needles in Weimer’s purse, she confessed to having two bundles in a body cavity and retrieved them for police, Pack wrote.
During booking, Weimer said she still had more heroin in her body cavity, according to Pack.
In total, police recovered 41 bags of heroin, according to Pack’s report.
Jackman, 22, of Greenfield, will be summoned to court on charges of possession of heroin, conspiracy to violate drug laws, knowingly being present where heroin is kept and traffic violations.
Francisco Cintron, 24, will also be summoned to court, on charges of conspiracy to violate drug laws, knowingly being present where heroin is kept and failing to wear a seatbelt.
Weimer was released on bail Tuesday, and is scheduled to return to court on May 5.
