YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Fair Lawn police said they seized a .45-caliber semi-automatic handgun loaded with hollow-point bullets and arrested a Pennsylvania couple after a sergeant found one of them with two bags of heroin and a needle in his lap as he sat behind the wheel of a car parked outside a local CVS.
Detective Sgt. Tim O’Shaughnessy summoned backups after looking into the 2014 Nissan Altima parked at the River Road pharmacy Monday night, Sgt. Brian Metzler said this morning.
Arrested were the driver, 41-year-old Sean Gill, and his passenger, Erin Harper, 34, who Metzler said was found at police headquarters with 43 bags of heroin stuffed into her underwear.
The gun was in her purse, its handle sticking out, the sergeant said.
The Hanover, PA couple were both charged with drug possession with the intent to distribute it and possession of a hypodermic needle.
Harper also was charged with illegal weapons possession and possession of hollow-point bullets.
