WOONSOCKET – Two women are fac­ing mul­ti­ple drug charges af­ter po­lice found an as­sort­ment of nar­cotics in their ve­hi­cle Thurs­day.

Sa­man­tha Lamoureux, 35, of Cen­tral Falls, is charged with pos­ses­sion of oxy­codone, a pre­scrip­tion painkiller; pos­ses­sion of crack co­caine; and driv­ing on a sus­pended li­cense.

Her pas­sen­ger, Mariah Gled­hill, 25, of South At­tle­boro, was charged with pos­ses­sion of metham­phetamine; pos­ses­sion of co­caine; and pos­ses­sion of fen­tanyl.

Po­lice re­ports say of­fi­cers stopped their car about 4 a.m. De­pot Square af­ter what be­gan as a well-be­ing check in the Cato

Hill area. Dis­patch re­ceived a call from some­one who saw a white fe­male “vis­i­bly shaking” af­ter knock­ing on the door of a Church Street res­i­dence.

When a cruiser pulled be­hind a dark-colored ve­hi­cle match­ing the caller’s de­scrip­tion, “it ap­peared the fe­male driv­ing was mak­ing an ob­vi­ous at­tempt to flee,” Of­fi­cer Christo­pher Rooney re­ported.

Af­ter pulling the ve­hi­cle over in De­pot Square, of­fi­cers said Lamoureux seemed to be hid­ing some­thing in her purse. Po­lice also learned she didn’t have a valid li­cense and at that point de­cided to de­tain the two women for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The of­fi­cers said Lamoureux was car­ry­ing a sin­gle dose of oxy­codone. Po­lice also found small amounts of fen­tanyl, metham­phetamine and co­caine in the ve­hi­cle, as well as a glass pipe used for smok­ing con­tra­band.

Fol­low­ing an ap­pear­ance

in Sixth Dis­trict Court, Lamoureux was held at the Adult Cor­rec­tional In­sti­tu­tions for vi­o­lat­ing her bail on East Prov­i­dence drug charges pend­ing since March. She’s due back in court for a hear­ing on July 26, ac­cord­ing to

the ju­di­ciary’s web site.

Gled­hill was re­leased on $3,000 per­sonal re­cog­ni­zance pend­ing an­other hear­ing on July 27.
