WESTPORT — A New York woman allegedly had a pound of meth in her car, discovered after officers found her stopped in the road and asleep at the wheel.
Police were called to to the Post Road East and Compo Road intersection due to a disabled car around midnight Jan. 17. The car’s driver, Noura Yousef, was allegedly asleep, but officers said she seemed disoriented and under the influence of drugs or alcohol when they woke her. Officers then saw glass pipes in the car, according to police, and a search turned up a FedEx package containing about one pound of methamphetamine.
The 26-year-old was charged with sale of a controlled substance and operating under the influence, as well as traffic violations of failure to drive in the proper lane and failure to carry a license.
Yousef, a resident of Willow Drive in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., was held on a $26,000 bond and given a Jan. 27 court date.
Due to the quantity of drugs that officers found, Westport officers are continuing to investigate the incident.
