BRATTLEBORO, Vt.—Vermont State Police say a woman and her daughter have been charged with dealing heroin and cocaine after being caught with big quantities of both during a traffic stop in Brattleboro.

Forty-two-year-old Melissa Davis and 19-year-old Haley Colburn, both of Royalton, were the focus of a two-month investigation before being arrested Monday on Interstate 91.

Troopers seized 238 bags of heroin and 53 grams of crack cocaine and charged both with trafficking in heroin and sale of crack cocaine, in addition to other charges.

Detective Sgt. John Merrigan says the two have been involved in the crack cocaine and heroin trade in Windsor County. Further charges are pending in the town of Hartford.
