GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Three people from Franklin County were arrested Thursday night after police found them “snorting cocaine” in a car in Greenfield.

According to the Greenfield Police Facebook page, Officer Felix Ramos was on foot patrol when he noticed a parked car in a Miles Street parking lot with the interior lights on, and three people inside.

Officer Ramos approached the car and found a brown piece of cardboard containing two “lines” of a white powdery, which he recognized to be cocaine. Officer Cody Guilbault was called in to assist Ramos in arresting 24-year-old Jacob Edward Gallipault, 24-year-old Kristen Matthews, and 21-year-old Leah Anne Wingler.

While the three people were being identified, Officer Guilbault saw that Wingler was trying to hide a tightly rolled $100 bill under her thigh that had the same white powdery. Police said that Officer Guilbault also noticed the white powdery under Wingler’s nose, which is when she admitted that they were all “snorting cocaine.”

Jacob Edward Gallipault of Gill and Leah Anne Wingler of Turners Falls were both charged with Drugs, Possession of a Class B Substance, and Conspiracy to Violate Drug Law.

Kristen Matthews of Greenfield was charged with Drugs, Possession of a Class B Substance, Conspiracy to Violate Drug Law, and Marijuana, Adult Possession of  Less than 1 Ounce.

All three were released on personal recognizance.
