Two people were arrested on drug charges after they were found sleeping and slumped over at a convenience store in Plainfield.

Police said 37-year-old Randy Valade and Gina Mineau, 47, both of Moosup, were found at the Cumberland Farms on South Main Street.

Officers said they were called to the store just before 9 p.m. on Tuesday.

Employees reported that Valade had fallen asleep in the store's "Chill Zone" for 40 minutes while attempting to make a milkshake.

Police said they found him on the floor with the milkshake in his hand.

Mineau was said to have been slumped over outside on the wall of the building. Officers found her in that spot.

Both suspects were found to be in possession of bags of heroin, according to police.

Mineau was also found to have suboxone without a proper prescription, police said.

Valade and Mineau were arrested.

While being escorted to the cruiser, however, police said Valade resisted and had to be restrained.

He was charged with possession of narcotics and interfering with a police officer. His bond was set at $10,000.

Mineau was charged with two counts of possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. Her bond was $5,000.

However, the bonds for both were adjusted by the State of Connecticut Bond Commissioner to a promise to appear in court.

Valade and Mineau were released and scheduled to face a judge in Danielson Superior Court on Sept. 27.
