ALBANY – Two Schenectady residents were arrested last week on drug counts after a traffic stop on the Thruway in Albany, state police said Tuesday.

Amarie N. Sears, 22, and Jasmine N. Milo, 24, both of Schenectady, were each charged with one count of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, state police said.

The incident happened Thursday on the Thruway in Albany as a state trooper stopped them for a traffic violation, state police said.

An interview with Sears, identified as the driver, revealed signs of drug use. A search of the two and the vehicle then resulted in the recovery of several bundles of what Sears later admitted to be heroin, state police said.

Sears also faces one count of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, while Milo faces an additional count of fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, felonies.

The two were processed and held for arraignment.
