The Wakeman Police Department found several pieces of suspected drug paraphernalia, including a possible crack pipe, during two recent traffic stops.

Police seized 87 Percocet pills from a vehicle traveling east on East Main Street on Jan. 15.

“The prescription didn’t belong to either occupant. The driver admitted to taking at lease one of the pills,” Chief Tim Hunker said.

The owner, Sara Bolen, 34, of Willard, then came to the police department in an attempt to claim her medication and was taken into custody on a felony warrant for failure to pay child support, Hunker said.

Bolen later was transported to the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office. The traffic stop remains under investigation.

Police stopped Scott R. Polachek, 32, of 1055 U.S. 224, Greenwich, for driving with a suspended license Jan. 16.

“He had a suspended license due to drug use. Police located heroin paraphernalia, a suspected crack pipe and marijuana in the vehicle,” Hunker said.

Polachek was taken to the Huron County Jail and booked on possession of a controlled substance, a fifth-degree felony punishable by six to 12 months behind bars.
