SOUTHINGTON — An Oakville woman has been charged after she was reportedly found with cocaine, prescription pills, and drug paraphernalia during a traffic stop last week.
Kathryn Ford, 32, of 54 Turner Ave., was charged with illegal possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, illegal possession of a prescription drug, illegible marker plate, operating an unregistered motor vehicle and failure to have liability insurance. Her bond was set at $10,000.
Police stopped Ford’s car about 2 a.m. Thursday in the area of 1845 Meriden-Waterbury Tpke. Sgt. Jeffrey Dobratz said officers discovered the car was not registered or insured and a police dog detected narcotics inside the vehicle.
In a search of the car, officers found cocaine, needles, wax folds, glass and metal pipes, and prescription anti-depressant pills that were not in their original container, Dobratz said.
