Police say that a Springfield woman has been charged with multiple offenses, including intent to distribute, following a traffic stop on Water Street on Friday, November 6.
An officer in the area of Water Street and School Street stopped the woman’s car after seeing it being driven at a high rate of speed in the area. Police said that the car’s driver initially appeared to speed up to get away from the officer, but that the driver eventually pulled to the side of the road.
Police said the driver initially gave the officer a wrong name and address before she was identified as Heather E. Bingle, 29, of Springfield.
During the stop, police were able to see multiple prescription bottles in plain sight inside of the vehicle, which prompted a further search, police said.
Police said that they found more than 100 Adderall pills wrapped in cellophane bags, Suboxone tablets, Suboxone strips, clonazepam tablets, pills that have not been identified, and digital scales while searching Ms. Bingle’s car.
Ms. Bingle was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of a Class B drug with intent to distribute, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, speeding, and being a motor vehicle operator refusing to identify themselves.
