Early morning traffic stop turns into couple’s drug bust
NASHUA – A Hudson police officer’s early-morning motor vehicle stop of a car allegedly going 45 mph in a posted 30 mph zone on Ferry Street near the Veterans bridge ended in the arrest of a Massachusetts couple on drug charges, police said.
Scott Taylor, 34, of 4 2nd Ave., Merrimac, and Kelsey Geary, 31, of 11 Jefferson St., Lawrence, were taken into custody around 1 a.m. Tuesday, after Taylor, the driver, allegedly admitted to one of the officers that he had heroin in his possession, according to police reports.
The officer questioned Taylor about drugs when he spotted a syringe cap on the floor of the car after he pulled it over.
Taylor, according to police, consented to a search of his car, from which police allegedly recovered quantities of fentanyl, Suboxone and Clonazepam.
Taylor and Geary were transported to police headquarters, where police said Taylor was booked on three counts of possession of a controlled drug, and Geary on two counts of possession of a controlled drug.
Geary was later released on bail, pending an arraignment scheduled for Feb. 20 in Hillsborough County Superior Court-South.
Taylor was housed overnight and arraigned later Tuesday afternoon in Superior Court. His bail status wasn’t immediately known.
