Officers arrested a Northford woman on drug and drug paraphernalia charges after she had been observed sitting in the passenger side of a black Nissan at the Metro-North Westport train station in Saugatuck, police said today.
According to Lt. David Farrell, an officer around 5 p.m. Sunday approached the vehicle in Lot No. 1 to check on woman’s welfare after noticing vomit on the pavement next to her door.
As the officer approached, “the female got extremely nervous and was evasive answering simple questions,” Farrell said.
The woman Diana Balkun, 29, admitted to having needles and heroin in the vehicle. Police Service Dog Koda was quickly deployed to conduct a search of the vehicle, Farrell said.
Found in the trunk were a small blackjack and a clear makeup pouch with 12 baggies, four opened and eight unopened, imprinted with the label Tiger and containing heroin, said Farrell.
Also inside the makeup pouch was a used syringe and needle.
Held in lieu of a $2,500, Balkun is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Monday, Aug. 7.
