Monroe Resident Turns Herself In for Drug Charges

Amber Dimenstein, 23, of Monroe was arrested on drug charges Monday for an incident that took place Sept. 21, police said. She turned herself in to headquarters after a warrant was put out for her arrest.

Dimenstein was charged for possession of narcotics, possession of a controlled substance, and failure to keep narcotics in a proper container after it was reported she appeared intoxicated while  walking with a male on Bridgeport’s North Avenue and Fairfield’s King’s Highway Cutoff in September, police said.

Dimenstein was transported to the hospital that day. Police found Xanax and heroin on her person, Lussier said.

Her court date is Oct. 19 and she is being held on a $10,000 bond.
