Police: 2 Men Had Heroin, Swiped Credit Card

Two men are charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Police arrested two men last Sunday who were allegedly in possession of heroin and a stolen credit card, according to authorities.

Police received a tip on Dec. 30 from a Port Chester resident saying that his brother and his brother's friend were driving under the influence of drugs. The tipster also noted his aunt was missing her American Express card, and that the brother may be in possession of it.

Officers soon after stopped a vehicle matching the tipster's description -- behind the wheel were the brother, 31-year-old Daniel Tremble, and his friend, 30-year-old Kajeten Kulpinski, police said.

During a search, police uncovered a hypodermic needle, and a Newport cigarette box containing three packets of heroin, according to Port Chester police lieutenant George Laderious.

Both men were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, a misdemeanor. The brother -- who was found to have the missing credit card, police said -- was also charged with criminal possession of stolen property in the fourth degree, a felony.
