Bellows Falls woman arrested in Massachusetts for heroin trafficking

BERNARDSTON, Mass. (WCAX) A Vermont woman will be arraigned Thursday after police say they found about $11,000 worth of heroin on her.

Massachusetts troopers stopped Ashley Cloutier's car on Interstate 91, just over the Vermont border in Bernardston, Massachusetts, for driving erratically.

When police stopped the car, they noticed a plastic bag which the Bellows Falls woman allegedly admitted was heroin.

Troopers say the bag contained more than 1,000 small wax bags, each containing a single "hit" of heroin. There were about 22 grams of heroin in the bag.

Cloutier, 27, of Bellows Falls, is charged with heroin trafficking.
