TOWN OF ULSTER – Troopers from the Kingston State Police barracks arrested two people minutes after 5 a.m. on New Year’s Day after they found a gun and drugs in their disabled pick-up truck that was pulled over on the side of Route 28 in the Town of Ulster.
When talking to the police, the driver gave them a false identity. Troopers later identified her as Lauren Armanie, 34, of Shandaken. She was charged with a misdemeanor of criminal impersonation, arraigned and released on her own recognizance.
Her passenger, Darion Alls, 50, of Newark, New Jersey, was wanted on a warrant from the State Department of Corrections.
A search of their Dodge Ram revealed a Ruger 9mm pistol, a 17-round magazine, a high-capacity magazine with 21 rounds, 48 grams of crack cocaine and a digital scale, white and blue fentanyl pills weighing 30 grams, Buprenorphine and Naloxone weighting 7.8 grams, and glassine envelopes.
Alls was committed to the Ulster County Jail in lieu of $30,000 bail, $60,000 bond or $100,000 partially secured bond.
