At 9:55 p.m., Troopers assigned to SP Fonda observed a red Saturn traveling north on State Route 30 in the City of Amsterdam in violation of the traffic law. A subsequent vehicle stop and interview of Coyle and Miller yielded inconsistencies. A K-9 sweep and search of the vehicle resulted in the seizure of a large quantity of heroin and crack cocaine paraphernalia.
Coyle was subsequently arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 3rd with intent to sell and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 4th. Miller was arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th and Criminal use of Drug Paraphernalia 2nd. Both Coyle and Miller were arraigned and remanded to Montgomery County Jail with a return court date for the City of Amsterdam.
