GRISWOLD, Conn. — Troopers from Griswold with the assistance of Connecticut State Police in Montville arrested two people Friday morning on numerous drug charges while responding to a report of a disabled vehicle on Interstate 395 near the Plainfield town line.

Police said the search led to the seizure of 130 units of Oxycodone, 60 grams of heroin, 60 grams of cocaine, 17 grams of marijuana and 30 grams of free base crack cocaine. Police also seized more than $7,100 in cash. The drugs were prepackaged for street sale.

A Ledyard police K-9 assisted state police in the search for drugs.

Police also charged Theriault with possession of less than 4 ounces of marijuana, possession of heroin, possession of heroin with intent to sell and failure to keep prescription medication in the original bottle.

Both are being held on an $100,000 bond, pending their arraignment today in Norwich Superior Court.
