ATTLEBORO, Mass. — Attleboro Police arrested 26 year old Lori Rickett of Providence on Saturday at 9 p.m. outside the Days Inn on Route 1. The driver, Tonia Pona, 36 of Central Falls was also arrested on an outstanding warrant. The vehicle was pulled over because of loud exhaust coming from the car. According to Police, an Attleboro officer was talking to the driver when he noticed Ricket dropping what appeared to be narcotics out of the rear of the vehicle. Ricket pleaded innocent Tuesday in Attleboro District Court to three counts of unlawful possession of drugs, one for suboxone and two related to unidentified class E substances.
