BRIDGEPORT - There are more drug charges today for the mother accused of illegally enrolling her son in a Norwalk school.

Tanya McDowell was already facing larceny charges for using a friend's address to send her son to Brookside Elementary School.

She was also arrested on 28 drug charges in Norwalk earlier this month.

Now, published reports say McDowell was arrested again yesterday after police say she sold crack cocaine and marijuana to an undercover officer in Bridgeport last month.

The officer reportedly says she sold to him twice, once during her son's birthday party.
