On December 24, 2017, at approximately 11:50 p.m., a member of the Plainfield Police Department was conducting a patrol check of the CVS Pharmacy located at 10 Lathrop Road, Plainfield, Connecticut when he observed a white Ford passenger car parked behind the business.
The Officer made contact with the individuals inside the vehicle and inquired what they were doing behind the closed business at the late hour. The female operator later identified as 22 year old Imani K. Hawthorne of Lebanon. Hawthorne stated that she had forgotten something from work, as she works in the pharmacy of CVS. While speaking with the passenger in the vehicle, the officer observed discrepancies in the stories. The officer again spoke with Hawthorne who stated that she was attempting to talk to the passenger about a potential romantic relationship. While speaking with Hawthorne, the officer smelled the odor of marijuana emitting from the interior portion of the vehicle. The officer asked Hawthorne if she had anything illegal located in the vehicle or on her person and she stated she did not. The officer eventually located marijuana and a glass smoking device on Hawthorne’s person.
A search of the vehicle revealed a baggy of cocaine. Hawthorne alleged that she had forgotten about the cocaine that was located inside her wallet.
Hawthorne was subsequently arrested for Possession of Narcotics: Cocaine, Possession of Marijuana, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Hawthorne was later released on a $2,500.00 non-surety bond and is scheduled to appear before the Danielson Superior Court on January 8, 2018.
