DNA Links Darien Woman to Cocaine-Covered Needles Left at School

Darien police have arrested a woman after a DNA test linked her to cocaine-covered hypodermic needles left at a local elementary school.

Students and staff of Holmes Elementary School in Darien found six hypodermic needles with cocaine residue on school grounds on three occasions in April and May.

The State of Connecticut Forensic Lab studied three of the needles and found the DNA of Anne Curtis, 32, who lives on Hoyt Street, near the school, police said.

Curtis turned herself in to Darien Police on Friday after learning that there was a warrant for her arrest. 

She was charged with three counts of risk of injury to a minor and was held on a $10,000.00 bond. 

She was taken to Stamford Superior Court and will be arraigned today.

It is not clear if she has an attorney for this case.
