YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A 61-year-old River Vale woman was stopped in Elmwood Park last night after driving her son to Paterson to buy heroin, authorities said this morning.
Deborah Winans was given a summons to appear in court to answer charges of drug possession in a motor vehicle after police found 10 bags of heroin and six Xanax pills following a 5:25 p.m. stop on East 55th Street, Elmwood Park Police Chief Michael Foligno told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
Her son, 29-year-old Daniel Winans, also of River Vale, was charged with two drug possession counts. He, too, was released on a summons.
The arrests came between two others EPPD traffic stops that led to drug charges yesterday:
The first, at 3:15 p.m. on River Drive, led to possession charges against 23-year-old borough resident Eric Saslowsky, who Foligno said was carrying 10 bags of heroin and two of crack cocaine.
At 8:20 p.m., officers arrested Tyler Stricker, 29, of Garfield, on River Drive after the chief said they found him carrying 20 bags of heroin.
Like the Winans, both men were released pending court appearances.
