Hartford residents had large amount of drugs and cash

T wo Hartford residents were arrested for possessing large amounts of drugs following an investigation last Thursday.

Arrested were 32-year-old Peter G. Holcomb Jr. and 23-year-old Amanda I. Northshield after a search warrant was conducted at their residence.

The investigation resulted in the seizure of narcotics, weapons and more than $35,000 in cash. Police recovered one pound of crack cocaine, more than an ounce of heroin, more than 11 pounds of marijuana, small quantities of hashish and psychedelic mushrooms and two illegally possessed handguns.

The pair was arrested for one count of first-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and one count of first-degree criminal possession of marijuana.

They were processed at the state police barracks in Greenwich, arraigned before Hartford Town Justice Sharon Schofield and remanded to Washington County Jail for lack of $250 bail. Police say further charges are pending.

The New York State Police, assisted by the Community Narcotics Enforcement Team-Capital and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office conducted the investigation.
