FULTONVILLE — Six people, including a 16-year-old, were arrested in a drug raid at a Fultonville home, state police said.

Troopers raided the Montgomery Street residence early Monday and found narcotics, pills, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, police said.

Troopers apprehended the building’s occupants — two on the main floor and four who were found hiding in the basement, they said.

Those charged include Marsha M. Vanslyke, 36, of Fultonville; Harold Nelson, 27, of New Hartford; Adam J Winney, 27, of Broadalbin; Jamie L Esposito, 36, of Johnstown; and Breanne E. McGowan, 39, of St. Johnsville.

They each face one count of third- and fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both felonies, along with misdemeanor charges for possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, child endangerment and a violation charge of marijuana possession, troopers said.

The child endangerment counts relate to the presence of the 16-year-old, who was not named and was charged with the same drug counts as the adults. The teenager was released to return to Family Court.

All five adults were arraigned. Winney and Nelson were ordered held without bail; Vanslyke, Esposito and McGowan were held on $20,000 bail.
