Portsmouth Police arrest Providence woman on drug charges

Posted

PORTSMOUTH — A 31-year-old Providence woman was arrested on Thursday, July 22, and charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Patrol Officer Elizabeth Lombardo was on a traffic post around 7:30 p.m. near police headquarters on East Main Road when she observed a woman — later identified as Chelsea D. Mann, of 424 Atwells Ave., Apt. 3L — in a passing vehicle but not wearing her seatbelt, according to police. 

Officer Lombardo stopped the vehicle in the parking lot of CVS on Turnpike Avenue. After meeting the driver and a passenger, probable cause existed to conduct a search of the vehicle, police said. 

During the search, Officer Lombardo found what appeared to be Xanax. Ms. Mann claimed possession of the suspected narcotics and was subsequently taken into custody, police said.

She was held overnight at police headquarters before being transported to 2nd District Court the following day, according to police.
