    Officials say police arrested a Randolph, Vermont, woman on heroin possession charges twice within 14 hours.

    The Rutland Herald reports Tara Bent was first found in possession of 70 bags of heroin during a traffic stop Sunday afternoon in Royalton.

    Vermont State Police Sgt. John Helfant said the 24-year-old Bent was held for about two hours and released.

    Police say Bent was then stopped again a little after 2 a.m. Monday on Interstate 91 in Rockingham. Officers found 50 bags of heroin hidden on Bent's body.

    Bent posted $10,000 bail at Southern State Correctional Facility in Springfield this week. It was not immediately known if she had a lawyer and there was no phone listing for her.
