Pair face drug charges after Glens Falls traffic stop

GLENS FALLS — Two Glens Falls residents were arrested on drug charges after a Friday traffic stop.

State police pulled over a vehicle driven by Chad W. Yrsha, 40, just before 3 p.m. for a traffic infraction. While interviewing Yrsha, the trooper found him to be in a possession of a small quantity of hydrocodone, according to police.

A search of the vehicle and Yrsha’s passenger, 45-year-old Kimberly I. Schwartfigure, found about 5.5 grams of cocaine, numerous tablets of hydrocodone, and a glass smoking pipe containing cocaine residue, police said.

Schwartfigure was sent without bail to Warren County Jail and is due in Glens Falls City Court on Tuesday.
