Darien woman arrested on drug charges


A Darien woman who was arrested Tuesday on drug charges is being investigated on possible links related to syringes found on nearby school grounds.

32-year-old Anne Curtis of 32 Hoyt st. was arrested Tuesday for possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to a press release.

Officers arrested Curtis on a warrant stemming from a used syringe and other items related to drug use recovered at her residence a few days prior.

Police are looking into links between a syringe found in Curtis home and identical ones found on the grounds of the Holmes School, located at 18 Hoyt St.

Curtis’ residence is adjacent to the school and shares the same driveway and parking lot. Seven used syringes have been found over the past several days on the grounds of the Holmes School, nearby to Curtis’ home, according to police.

Curtis is being held in lieu of a $1000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on May 16.

Police are warning the public to not touch any discarded hypodermic needles found in public areas throughout Darien. The public is asked to call the Darien Police who will properly dispose of the syringes.

The Darien Police can be contacted at 203-662-5300.
