FAIRFIELD — A police officer on patrol spotted a car pulled off under the Interstate 95 overpass just before 2 a.m. April 15 and two men in the roadway who appeared to be arguing. The Fairfield officer ended up taking a Stamford woman who had been in the pulled-over vehicle into custody after finding 102 oxycodone pills in her possession, police said.

Nicole Stramandinoli, 23, was charged with possession of narcotics.

She told police she had met the two men at World of Beer in Stamford and was giving them a ride home. The two men began arguing, allegedly causing the car to sway, and Stramandinoli pulled off the highway. She said the two men got out of the car at that point.

According to the report, police could smell a strong order of marijuana, and asked Stramandinoli to get out the car. She allegedly told police there was nothing illegal in the car, and then admitted she had a bottle of oxycodone in her purse. She said she stole the pills from her mother.

Stramandinoli, who lives on Underhill Street, was released on a promise to appear in state Superior Court in Bridgeport on April 26.
