DUNKIRK, N.Y. (WIVB) — A suspicious vehicle in Dunkirk led to the arrest of two people on drug charges early Tuesday morning.
Police were patrolling the area of Wright Park in the city when they saw a vehicle sitting there around 1:30 a.m.
When police came up to the vehicle, they say its occupants, Dunkirk resident Amber Harrison, 39, and Irving resident Darryl Devore, 52, appeared nervous.
Officers began to ask the pair some questions, but they say they did not get the correct information the first time. Harrison allegedly lied to police about her identity and birth date.
Once more officers arrived at the scene, Harrison’s true identity was determined. The woman was wanted on several outstanding bench warrants for failing to appear in court.
Police say that when they took her from the car, they found a makeshift crack pipe in the vehicle. This led to the removal of Devore, who was driving.
Under the alleged crack pipe, police say they found a package of crack cocaine.
Harrison and Devore were then taken to the Dunkirk Police headquarters, where Devore was allegedly found to have two more packages of crack in his socks. Police also seized “a substantial amount of cash” from him.
Both were charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, but Devore faced additional felony counts of fifth-degree criminal substance possession and criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.
