A 37-year-old Middletown woman is facing drug charges after police allegedly found her with 445 bags of heroin during a traffic stop last week.
Police reportedly stopped Kenwauna Garrett's Chevrolet Malibu at the intersection of Cedar Lane Road and Betsy Rawls Drive at about 3 p.m. on May 9 because she wasn't wearing a seatbelt.
During the traffic stop, Officer Thomas Lancaster recovered the heroin, which weighed about 11.5 grams in total, according to Middletown Police Chief Henry Tobin.
Garrett, a resident of the 500 block of New Street, is charged with possession of a controlled substance in a Tier 5 quantity, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
She also was cited for failing to wear a seatbelt, Tobin said.
Garrett is being held at the Baylor Women's Correctional Institution in Wilmington on an $85,001 cash bail, he said.
