Authorities say Kayla Rothwell of Moravia was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

According to state police, the trooper stopped to check on a vehicle that was stopped on the shoulder of the highway in the town of Marathon.

Investigators say although the trooper observed the Rothwell using heroin, she was not found to be driving while impaired.

Police searched the vehicle and found heroin, hypodermic syringes and other drug-related items.

In addition to the possession count, Rothwell was cited for traffic violations. She was ordered to appear in Marathon town court on Wednesday.
