MANCHESTER - Police, who stopped a woman allegedly driving while operating a mobile device, say they also found drugs on both the driver and her passenger.
Alise Paraskeva, 29, of Manchester was at the intersection of Valley Street and Maple Street when police stopped her Monday evening. Police say they discovered there was an outstanding warrant for Paraskeva's arrest.
During a search of the car, police say they found Clonazepam pills that were not in their original container and Paraskeva was charged with possession of a controlled drug.
Police say they also found passenger Katherine Burke, 32, of Manchester, in possession of two uncapped, used syringes and .8 grams of heroin. She was charged with possession of heroin.
Manchester police said they believed it was the first arrest in the city stemming from the hands-free driving law that began on July 1.
Paraskeva is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday. Burke was released on $2,000 bail with a court date of Aug. 26.
