RARITAN TWP., NJ – Patrol Officer Anthony Moreno arrested Bridget L. Montgomery, 32, of Bensalem, Pa., and charged her with narcotics offenses after a motor vehicle stop at the Triton Gas Station on Route 31 around 7:10 a.m. Feb. 16.

Police were dispatched to the Route 31 area near Hunterdon Central High School on a report of an apparently disabled vehicle. While responding, police were told of a possible medical emergency because the driver of the vehicle appeared to be slumped over the steering wheel. Police said they were then told that the driver “appeared to come to” and then abruptly sped off. Using the description provided, police found the vehicle at the gas station.

After an on-scene investigation, Montgomery was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance (heroin), possession of scheduled prescription pills without a prescription, possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana and possession of a hypodermic syringe. She was also issued motor vehicle summonses for throwing debris from a vehicle and possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle. Montgomery was released.
