Wakefield Woman Charged With Possession of Marijuana After Unreported Accident
Victoria J. Silvestri, 49, of 1610 Broad Rock Road, Wakefield, was arrested at about 4:25 a.m. on Aug. 11 and charged with possession of marijuana.
According to police, at about 2:25 a.m. they received a report of a motor vehicle accident on Mooresfield Road near Rose Hill Road. Police noted that the accident was found nearby on Broad Rock Road.
Police noted that a blue pick-up truck was crashed into a tree on the shoulder of Broad Rock Road. The truck was abandoned, but police noted that the owner – Silvestri – lived nearby.
According to police, when they responded to her address, she was being helped by two other people. The people told police that they had given Silvestri help in getting home, and then provided her with a mixed drink of vodka and orange juice.
A search of Silvestri’s truck was conducted, and police said a small baggie of marijuana was found in a passenger compartment, along with a glass marijuana smoking pipe.
Silvestri had been transported to South County Hospital for treatment, where police interviewed her and arrested her for possession of marijuana.
Police noted that the two men that assisted Silvestri were unhelpful, and refused to provide written statements. Both were told to call 911 in the future when coming across an accident, instead of transporting the victim home.
