Three individuals were arrested last week following a drug bust at a traffic stop, according to a report.

The arrest report stated that last Thursday (Feb. 8), the Cortland County Drug Task Force conducted a traffic stop on Port Watson Street in Cortland.

According to the report, Timothy D. Lucas, 52, and Gina M. Rose, 32, were both in possession of glassine envelopes containing fentanyl. Lucas, the driver of the vehicle, provided authorities with revoked non-driver identification.

Elizabeth K. Burdick, 38, was a passenger in the vehicle and was “interfering with the officers’ investigation” and was in possession of two grams of crack cocaine, about 19 grams of Molly, packaging materials and an undisclosed amount of money, the report noted.

According to the report, the street value of the drugs is about $1,150.

Burdick was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance (a Class-B Felony), two counts of second-degree criminally using drug paraphernalia (Class-A Misdemeanors), second-degree obstructing governmental administration (a Class-A Misdemeanor) and possession of synthetic drugs (a local law, Class-A Misdemeanor).

Rosa and Lucas were both charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance (a Class-A Misdemeanor).

Burdick, Rose and Lucas were all processed, arraigned and released. Lucas and Rosa are both due to appear in city court on Feb. 26, while Burdick is set to appear in city court on March 6.
