Connecticut woman arrested on drug charges

HOULTON, MAINE — A Connecticut woman was arrested by Houlton Police Friday for two counts of drug possession following a traffic stop.

According to Houlton Police Chief Tim DeLuca, police responded to a report of an erratic vehicle being operated on Interstate 95 at about 4:16 p.m. Friday. Officer Jasmine Cyr waited for the vehicle on the northbound lane of U.S. Route 1 and noticed the vehicle, a Subaru with Connecticut license plates, continuing to operate in an erratic manner, the chief said.

Officer Cyr stopped the vehicle in the Dunkin Donuts parking lot and with the assistance of Officer Matt Quint conducted an on-site investigation. That investigation resulted in the recovery of several doses of heroin and suboxone, along with scales and packaging materials.

Carisma S. Cachu, 24, of Storrs, Connecticut was charged with two counts of unlawful possession of scheduled drugs, while her passenger, Joshua D. Wilcox, 24, of Mansfield, Connecticut was charged with failure to give police a correct name and address.
