    Police in Norwich arrested a 43-year-old local woman during a drug raid on Tuesday afternoon and seized three firearms, pounds of drugs and almost $2,000 in cash.

    Police served a drug-related search and seizure warrant at 60 Pearl Street, apartment A, at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday to investigate anonymous complaints of drug dealing from the residence.

    Raquel N. Baker, a 43-year-old resident of the apartment, was arrested and police recovered a Hi-Point 9mm with a high capacity magazine, a Smith and Wesson .380 with a laser sight, an H&R Arms .32 revolver and several rounds of ammunition, police said. 

    Police also seized 3.2 pounds of marijuana, 10 grams of cocaine and more than $1,800 in U.S. currency.

    Baker was charged with possession of cocaine, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia.

    She was held on a $25,000 bond and is scheduled to be presented in court at G.A. 21 on April 24.

    Additional arrests are anticipated because one of the targets of the search and seizure warrant was not home at the time the warrant was served, police said.
