Troopers stopped Martin’s vehicle on the Taconic State Parkway for traveling in excess of the posted speed limit. During the investigation, a hypodermic needle was observed in plain view which led to a vehicle search, police said. In the vehicle, troopers located a large amount of heroin and Clonazepam pills

Mickle and Martin were arraigned before the Town of Pleasant Valley Justice Court and remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond.
