Norwich — A Norwich woman was arrested Thursday after police said they found drugs and her toddler son in the car she was driving.

Police said that at about 6:15 p.m., Officers Kyle Besse and Dan Collins ordered Ladd to pull over after observing her traveling at a high speed on McKinley Avenue. They found pre-packaged narcotics in the car, including 75 assorted pain pills.
Police said that Ladd’s 18-month-old son also was in the vehicle at the time. The child was turned over to a family member.
Ladd was being held in lieu of a bond pending her arraignment Friday in Norwich Superior Court.
