Two arrested for felony drug offense in Wappinger

The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of two (2) subjects for a felony level drug possession in the Town of Wappinger at approximately 9:10 pm on 2/1/14.

While acting on a tip, Sheriff’s Deputies located the two people at the New Hackensack Plaza in the Town of Wappinger and it was discovered that they were attempting to sell the drug Suboxone. Suboxone is a controlled substance that is prescribed to treat addictions, much like methadone. The two were then taken into custody and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the 3rd degree, which is a Class B Felony. The subjects are identified as Dillon Farmer (age 22 of Wappinger) and Sara Boulerice (age 29 of the Town of Poughkeepsie). It should be noted that neither subject is associated with any business in the plaza, and their presence there had nothing to do with the businesses.

After being processed both subjects were arraigned at the Town of Wappinger Court, and were remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond. As in any criminal case, the charges described here are merely accusations and the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. More information may be released as it becomes available.
