Police: Tanya McDowell was peddling marijuana, crack cocaine
The Bridgeport woman accused of stealing an education for her son in a Norwalk school was back in court today after a drug bust on Friday.
Police say McDowell was peddling 30 bags of marijuana and 23 bags of crack cocaine in front of Norwalk's Columbus Magnet School prior to the sting operation.
McDowell's attorney, Darnell Crosland, argued that she was unfairly targeted by Norwalk police, although Norwalk Police Chief Harry Rilling says McDowell was in no way targeted.
McDowell is due back in court for the drug charges on June 25 and is being held on a $2,000 bond.
