HANOVER — A rental vehicle that sent out an automated distress signal led to the seizure of 2,200 fentanyl pills and an arrest warrant for an out-of-state woman on felony drug charges, according to Hanover police.
Hanover police said it arrested Heaven N. Lee, whose past residences include Connecticut, South Carolina and Mississippi, and charged her with driving under the influence after the Avis rental vehicle she was operating activated its emergency alert. The vehicle was observed to be operating erratically on Hanover Center Road on Friday, Hanover police said Monday.
Lee was transported to Grafton County jail on the DUI and later released.
Due to the suspicion of drug activity, police sought a search warrant for the vehicle, which had been rented out of New York. When the vehicle was searched, police said they found more than 2,200 fentanyl pills — with an estimated street value of $25,000 — and 182 grams of methamphetamine.
Hanover Police subsequently issued an arrest warrant for Lee, charging her with two felony counts of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and fentanyl.
