The police arrived at the residence, where they arrested Christopher J. Fallon, 22, of McGrath Road.

Police said that the nearby presence of a drug-sniffing dog helped lead to the arrest of an Onset woman.

As Officer Desrosiers prepared to stop the Buick, he noticed its passenger threw something out of her window.

Officer Desrosiers informed the women that he was a K-9 officer and that they could observe his drug-sniffing partner, Dutch, in his cruiser.

At that point, police said, the driver, 39-year-old Jennifer L. Farren, acknowledged she possessed heroin and handed it to Officer Desrosiers.
