Wakefield woman charged with felony drug possession


RICHMOND — A Wakefield woman was charged with felony possession of drugs after Richmond police found her sitting inside her running vehicle at an intersection on South County Trail.

Heather Henley, 45, of 20 Branch St., was charged with two counts of felony possession of drugs, obstructing a police officer in execution of duty, a misdemeanor, and driving under the influence of drugs, also a misdemeanor. She was also charged with refusal to submit to a blood test, a misdemeanor.

Richmond Police Chief Elwood M. Johnson Jr. said there were 34 pills containing zolpidem tartrate, often found in the brand-name drug Ambien, and about 18 pills containing duloxetin hydrochloride, found in Cymbalta. He said there was no prescription for either drug.

Henley was processed at the Richmond police station where she was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Joseph H. Scot and was released on a promise to appear in 4th Division District Court in Wakefield for a felony screening on July 23.
