STRATFORD, Conn. -- A Stratford man and a New Hampshire woman were arrested on drug charges Thursday after a large quantity of heroin was found in their car following a traffic stop, according to state police.

At around 5 p.m. Thursday state troopers were conducting motor vehicle enforcement on I-84 eastbound on the exit 69 on-ramp in Tolland when they saw a car with a driver who was not wearing her seatbelt, according to police. The car was stopped and troopers spoke with the driver, 24-year-old Kaitlyn Woodbury of Gilford, N.H., as well as the passenger, 28-year-old Daniel Peal of Stratford.

The troopers determined that there may be illegal drugs in the vehicle, and Woodbury allowed them to search the car, police said. They located 28 bags of heroin and a syringe that were in the possession of Woodbury and Peal, according to police.

The two were taken into custody and charged with illegal possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. There were each held on $5,000 bonds and appeared in court Friday.
