FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Stamford woman found with 102 oxycodone pills and a cigarette pack full of pot Saturday faces a narcotics charge in Fairfield, police said.
Nicole Stramandinoli, of Underhill Street, told police she was parked under the I-95 overpass on Coolidge Street around 1:45 a.m. because two men she was giving a ride to Bridgeport started arguing in her backseat.
Police, who stopped to investigate when they saw the two men arguing outside the car, detected the odor of marijuana and asked if they had any contraband in the car.
Stramandinoli initially denied she did, but then told officers she had a bottle of oxycodone pills she stole from her mother in her purse, police said. She also said the pot they found in a Newport cigarette pack in the glove box was hers, police said.
Stramandinoli was charged with possession of narcotics. She was released on a promise to appear in court on April 26.
