If you're allegedly carrying illegal substances on your person, one surefire way to catch the eye of the law is to commit a traffic violation along a well-traveled stretch of highway—and that's exactly what Collingswood police say a trio of suspects did that led to their eventual arrests.
On October 16, police stopped two men at the intersection of Route 30 and 130 for allegedly improperly crossing the highway. The officer escorted the men back to the patrol vehicle to issue a summons, when one of them allegedly ran off.
After a brief foot chase, Eric Larmour, 43, of Tuckerton, was apprehended in the 100 block of Richie Avenue. Police said Larmour was found to be in possession of nine, clear, plastic bags containing purported crack-cocaine.
The other man, Brian Larmour, 40, also of Tuckerton, was charged for possession of a controlled, dangerous substance (CDS).
Police also discovered that Brian Larmour was wanted on active warrants in multiple counties for crimes ranging from operating a motor vehicle with a license suspended for DWI to motor vehicle burglary. He was remanded to the Camden County correctional facility.
A similar situation occurred at 10 a.m. on November 10 at the same location.
While on patrol in the area of Route 130 and the White Horse Pike, police said Lisa Payakovich allegedly did not use the crosswalk to walk her bicycle across the highway. Payakovich, 46, of Haddon Heights, was stopped, and was unable to provide any identification.
Police asked if she was in possession of any contraband or illegal substances, and Payakovich allegedly surrendered four bags of purported heroin. She was released on a summons pending a court date.
