ROME – A Remsen woman is facing charges after a traffic stop led to the discovery of narcotics, according to the Rome Police Department.
Around 10:25 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 23, Rome police stopped a 2009 Ford F-150 in the 100 block of West Dominick Street. Police say an off-duty patrolman saw the vehicle parked illegally in a parking lot, and the vehicle has also been the subject of several complaints involving local narcotic activity.
The off-duty patrolman then contacted on-duty officers, who stopped the vehicle driven by 54-year-old Aida Carrilio of Remsen a short time later. Police say that during the traffic stop, officers found 12 individually packaged baggies of fentanyl on Carrilio.
Carrilio is charged with felony third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor third-degree unlicensed operation.
Rome police detectives with the department’s Special Investigation’s Unit and the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office’s Narcotics Unit assisted the Rome Police Patrol Division with the investigation.
