Homeless Woman Had Drugs in Car, Police Say

NORWALK, Conn. – A homeless woman was arrested Monday in Norwalk on narcotics charges. Norwalk Police said that while they were executing four warrants for her arrest they found prescription painkillers in her car.

Elizabeth Torres, 25, was charged with criminal attempt and four counts of legal manufacture/distribution/sale of prescription drugs. Bond was $100,000.

Police say they found nine packages of Fentanyl in Torres' Toyota Corolla. Fentanyl is a narcotic pain medicine prescribed for cancer patients whose pain is not controllable by other drugs, according to drugs.com. The Fentanyl was not in its correct packaging, police say, and there was no prescription label.
