Woman arrested on drug, counterfeiting charges in Portsmouth


PORTSMOUTH — Here are some recent highlights from the Portsmouth Police reports:

Monday, June 20 

Adrienne L. Longtin, 33, of 76 Pitman St., Apt. 3, Fall River, was charged with the manufacture, possession and delivery of a controlled substance; two counts of possession of a controlled substance; and possession of a counterfeit bill or note. According to police, officers stopped her vehicle around 3:45 a.m. after she ran a stop sign and failed to use a turn signal in the area of Boyd’s Lane and Chase Road. While conducting a pat down on Longtin, officers found a glass pipe that’s commonly used for crack cocaine, according to police. A search of the vehicle yielded what was suspected to be crack cocaine and amphetamines in Longtin’s purse, police said. While outside the vehicle, the Longtin threw an additional bag of suspected fentanyl near the officers’ patrol vehicle, and was found to be concealing a “large quantity” of suspected fentanyl while at the police station. In addition, officers found $1,500 of counterfeit currency in her purse, police said.

Michael J. Greb, 29, of 86 Pitman St., Fall River, was charged with driving under the influence (DUI-first offense), after officers were called to the area of East Main Road and Turnpike Avenue around 6:30 p.m. and found him asleep behind the wheel of a running vehicle, police said.
