Lacey detectives witnessed suspected drug activity in a local convenience store parking lot, leading to the arrest of two women.
Caitlin Sheeran, 23, of Lanoka Harbor and Samantha Sisler, 24, of Gloucester were occupants of separate cars and allegedly involved in the drug activity on Jan. 30.
Sheeran was found in possession of folds consistent with heroin packaging that was later found to be an imitation controlled substance, police said. She was arrested and charged with intent to distribute an imitation controlled dangerous substance in addition to an outstanding traffic warrant.
Sisler was allegedly in possession of muscle relaxants and 27 folds containing heroin. She was charged with possession of heroin and possession of a prescription legend drug.
Sheeran posted $500 bail for the outstanding warrant issued by the Lacey Municipal Court.
Both Sisler and Sheeran were released on their own recognizance pending a court appearance.
