Through investigation officers allegedly found a large quantity of methamphetamine, fentanyl, scales, packaging materials and over $1,700.00 in cash in Duprey’s possession.
Dupery was arrested and charged with two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, two counts of second-degree criminal possession of drug paraphernalia, and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Furthermore, police said Dupery was driving on a suspended license.
