POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Three Poughkeepsie residents were arrested on drug possession charges following a traffic stop by the New York State Police -- Highland Barracks in the Town of Lloyd on Saturday.

According to police, troopers stopped a vehicle being driven by SharonRose Elvin, 53, with two other passengers, while on Route 9W in the Town of Lloyd.

During the stop, troopers had reason to believe that the three might have drugs, and a probable cause search of the vehicle and its occupants revealed they had heroin, marijuana and prescription medication, police said.

All three occupants were arrested including Elvin, Kemani S. Longmore, 23, and Floyd A. Evans, 29, all of Poughkeepsie, for seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, police said.

Elvin was ultimately charged with criminally possessing a controlled hypodermic instrument in addition to the above charge.

Longmire was also charged with third-degree possession of an unlawful substance and fourth-degree third-degree possession of heroin, police added. He was additionally charged with unlawful possession of marijuana (a violation), felony tampering with physical evidence for concealing drugs on his body and possession of a controlled substance outside of its original container (a Public Health Law violation).

Elvin and Evans were released on appearance ticket and ordered to return to the Lloyd Town Court on Jan. 17. Longmire was arraigned in Lloyd Town Court and held at Ulster County Jail on $25,000 cash / $50,000 bond and ordered to re-appear in Lloyd Town Court on Tuesday.
