ALBANY — Two Vermont women were arrested on the Thruway this weekend after police say they were carrying more than 120 grams of heroin.

On Sunday state troopers pulled over Heidi Hutchins, 33, and her passenger Felicia Ackley, 26, for a moving violation.

An investigation found they were carrying drugs and a hypodermic needle.

Hutchins and Ackley were each charged with criminal drug possession and were sent to Albany County Jail on $20,000 bail.

They are scheduled to appear in Albany Town Court later this month.
