A Flanders woman was arrested on felony drug possession charges Tuesday after East End Drug Task Force carried out a search warrant on her Priscilla Avenue home.

The East End Drug Task Force carried out a search warrant on 105 Priscilla Avenue Tuesday in response to community complaints and as a result of ongoing investigations into drug sales activity in the Flanders area, according to a police press release.

Police recovered quantities of crack cocaine, cocaine, cash and a scale from the home and arrested Tyra E. Crump, 46.

Police charged her with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree with intent to sell (a class B felony), two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fourth degree (a class D felony) and criminal use of drug of paraphernalia (a misdemeanor).

Crump is to be arraigned in Southampton Town Justice Court.

Southampton Town Police Emergency Services Unit and Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office K-9 units assisted in serving the search warrant.

Editor’s note: A criminal charge is an accusation. By law, a person charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
