A 19-year-old Rockland woman was sentenced Thursday, Jan. 18, to 30 days in jail for illegally having oxycodone in a drug-free zone.

Emily Vitale, 19, of Rockland, was sentenced to three years in jail with all but 30 days suspended, stayed until Jan. 29, placed on probation for three years, and fined $400 for illegal importation of drugs.

A more serious charge of felony aggravated trafficking in drugs was dismissed.

She was arrested Nov. 16, when Rockland police officers were on patrol and saw a motor vehicle parked by the harbormaster's building. The officers parked their cruiser away from the building and walked to the vehicle.

Officers detected the smell of marijuana and spoke to the two men in the vehicle, as well as Vitale. The investigation found Vitale with the oxycodone and she was arrested and taken to the Knox County Jail in Rockland.

Harbor Park is classified as a drug-free zone and penalties can be more severe for having illegal drugs there.
