SOUTHINGTON - A traffic stop turned up suspected cocaine and other drugs when an Oakville woman was arrested in Southington.

Kathryn Ford, 32, was charged after a police-trained K9 alerted officers that there were drugs in her vehicle, police said Tuesday.

Ford was pulled over last Thursday, at about 2:15 a.m., in the area of 1845 Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike.

After the police dog sniffed for drugs, officers searched the vehicle and reported finding two small baggies of suspected cocaine, another container with suspected cocaine inside, prescription pills that were not in their original container, wax folds containing an unknown substance, two glass pipes with burnt residue, a metal pipe with burnt residue and three needles.

Additionally, police said, officers found that the vehicle was neither registered nor insured.

Ford was arrested on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, illegal possession of a prescription drug, illegible marker plate, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, failure to have liability insurance and two counts of illegal possession of a controlled substance.

Ford is free on $10,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on Sept. 26.
