A woman from Poultney, Vermont, has been indicted on the state's weightiest drug charge in connection with an October drug seizure in Wilton.

Johanna M. Dorsey, 29, of Bentley Avenue, was charged with felony counts of first-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance in connection with an Oct. 30 traffic stop on the Northway.

The charges allege she possessed more than 8 ounces of an unspecified narcotic. A misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child was filed because a child was in the vehicle with her, records show.

Dorsey was also charged with illegally possessing painkillers in Saratoga County Jail after she was booked, but that charge was not in the indictment that was handed up Friday.

Dorsey, who has a lengthy drug arrest record in Vermont, is being held in Saratoga County Jail pending arraignment before county Judge James Murphy.
