Police arrested a Mashpee woman who allegedly concealed four grams of heroin inside a bag of rice in her car along with 30 grams of marijuana, police said.

Police conducted a motor vehicle stop on Galvin for speeding and turning without signaling from Bearse's Way onto Fresh Holes Road, the report stated.

Galvin was allegedly rolling a marijuana cigarette when police pulled her over on Fresh Holes Road in Hyannis. During the stop, police stated they saw her conceal a bag of marijuana under her seat and in a car search officers found a bag of heroin concealed inside a bag of rice in her center console in addition to marijuana.

When questioned about the drugs, Galvin was quoted in the report as saying, "It's mine and I'm selling it. I come from a family of drug dealers."
