NORWICH – The female co-defendant in the $5,000 heroin drug bust – executed in the spring of 2014 – was terminated from drug treatment court and re-sentenced to prison on Feb. 6 in Chenango County Court.
Lynn M. Minck, 45, Norwich, was charged on May 28, 2014 with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree (with intent to sell), a class B felony, and criminal nuisance in the first degree, a class E felony.
Minck and her boyfriend, John A. Zangari, 51 of Norwich, were on their way back from New York City when they were pulled over by the Norwich Police Department at 5:35 p.m. last May on Rexford Street in Norwich. They were stopped and searched following a joint investigation by the NPD and the Chenango County Sheriff's Office.
It is alleged she and Zangari possessed 40 glassine envelopes of heroin in their rented Ford Focus, drugs which authorities said they intended to sell.
