A Pease Avenue woman faces several drug charges after she allegedly purchased prescription narcotics illegally, police said.
Fairfield's Detective Bureau received a report of narcotics activity in the area and launched an investigation. On Friday, investigators conducted surveillance on the suspect -- 49-year-old Tracy Carbone -- and followed her to an undisclosed area, where she allegedly purchased the narcotics, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said.
Detectives followed Carbone back to her Pease Avenue home and conducted a motor vehicle stop, according to the report. Carbone consented to a search of her car, which revealed a pill bottle with an assortment of pills and a pill organizer, Lussier said.
Police found two green pills, which have not been identified, and six small blue pills believed to be the painkiller oxycodone, according to the report.
Carbone was charged with failure to keep narcotics in their original containers, illegal sale or distribution of prescription drugs, and possession of narcotics. She is due in court on Oct. 9.
