PLAINFIELD, Conn. (WFSB) -

Two people were arrested in Plainfield on Saturday night after police said they seized Crack Cocaine, Xanax pills, and needles. 

Officers were called to conduct a "wanted person check" at 4 Windsor Ave. around 10:15 p.m. Police said they were looking for 39-year-old Amy Wiese of Plainfield.

When officers arrived, police said Wiese and another individual, who was identified as 42-year-old Joseph Silva of Waterford, attempted to leave the scene in a vehicle. While making contact with police, Wiese gave a false name and Silva tried to mislead officers of Wiese's true identity.

Wiese and Silva were both placed under arrest.

During the investigation, K-9 Labrador Retriever Vail was deployed and located multiple needles along with other drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle.

Police found Silva, who was initially placed under arrest for interfering with a police investigation, to be in possession of one gram of Crack Cocaine and 40 Xanax pills. He was released on a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to be at Danielson Superior Court on Jan. 2. 

Wiese was charged with criminal impersonation along with numerous other charges. She is being held on a $51,000 bond. She will be in Danielson Superior Court for her arraignment on Monday.
