LAKEHURST – A faulty brake lamp led to another drug arrest in Lakehurst.

Police noticed the faulty brake lamp on a vehicle 3:15 p.m. June 3 at Route 70 and Center Street. Feeling they had probable cause, police searched the occupants and vehicle and “a subsequent search turned up a quantity of MDMA (Molly), a hypodermic needle, drug paraphernalia and a bottle of urine,” according to a Lakehurst Police report.

Adrienne L. Hreha, 30, of South Toms River was driving the vehicle. She was charged with possession of MDMA and possession of drug paraphernalia, as well as issued two motor vehicle summonses for possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle and maintenance of lamps.

The passenger, Frances G. Ostroff, 36, of Whiting, admitted that she planned to sell the urine to a friend to pass a drug test. She was charged with possession of MDMA, possession of a hypodermic needle, possession of drug paraphernalia and distribution of urine with the intent to defraud a drug test.

“Both parties were issued warrants for the charges and transported to the Ocean County Jail where they were lodged pending a mandatory court date with the Ocean County Superior Court,” Lakehurst Police said.

The arrests were made by Officer Jason Guide and Sgt. Matthew Kline.
