UPDATE: A typo was fixed to correct the amount of bags of heroin and cocaine that police allegedly found of Murray and Barnes.
We didn't have a FILF (Felon I'd Like TO F$#%) this week up until today and she's got a little back story.
21-year-old Mackenzie Barnes was arrested with 40-year-old Travis Murray after the vehicle they were in was pulled over by a Livingston County Sheriff's Deputy on I-390 for a traffic violation.
After speaking to the driver, Murray, the Deputy tested both occupants and both were found to be under the influence of drugs.
Murray and Barnes were also found to be in possession of 40 bags of heroin and cocaine.
Both are charged with 3rd Degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance and 2 counts of 7th Degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance
Murray was also chard with DWAI. Barnes got an additional tampering with physical evidence charge for trying to hide some drugs so the Deputy couldn't find them.
After we reported this on the air, a 4th man called in to tell us that Mckenzie Barnes had been arrested twice earlier this year on drug related charges.
On March 19, State Troopers arrested Barnes for Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance after she was pulled over on State Route 21 in the town of Almond. Troopers found a marijuana pipe on the car seat, and crushed oxycodone pills in the car as well.
On August 7, State Troopers arrested Barnes for 7th Degree Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance. Troopers were investigating a complaint at a residence on Ryan Road in Almond and found her to be in possession of heroin.
