SOUTH DEERFIELD — Deerfield Police officers recently arrested two individuals, including one Buckland resident, on drug possession and stolen vehicle charges.

Officers were called at 1 a.m. on Aug. 6 to the Red Roof Inn on Greenfield Road for a report of stolen vehicle located there. The vehicle was stolen in Maine, and it was equipped with radio theft tracking equipment, according to a post made Tuesday on the Deerfield Police Department’s Facebook page.

Officers were able to locate the hotel guests with the stolen vehicle — Christian Browne, 34, of Goffstown, N.H., and Christina Roy, 33, of Buckland.

According to the Police Department’s statement, Browne was wanted by a Massachusetts court on larceny charges, as well as a New Hampshire court for violating court-ordered probation.

Officers allegedly discovered narcotics in the hotel room, and Browne was found with more than $2,000 in cash. Roy, who allegedly admitted she had also been in the stolen vehicle, was also found in possession of narcotics, according to the statement.

Browne was arrested and charged with receiving a stolen vehicle, two counts of possession with intent to distribute a Class B drug and being a fugitive from justice out of New Hampshire.

Roy was also arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute a Class B drug, possession of a Class E drug and receiving a stolen motor vehicle.

Deerfield Police Officer Timothy Boland was granted a warrant to search the bags of both suspects, which led to subsequent charges for both Roy and Browne of trafficking a Class A drug.

Both individuals are expected to appear in Greenfield District Court for a pretrial conference on Oct. 8.
