NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- New Canaan Police charged a 24-year-old woman who lives in town with selling drugs, including heroin.

Elizabeth Hanson, of 73 River St., was charged with two counts each of possession of narcotics and selling narcotics. She was released on a promise to appear in court.

Police executed a search warrant and arrest warrant on March 2 at her residence after what police said was an extensive investigation led by Sgt. Andrew Walsh.

The arrest warrants were a result of two separate occasions in which Hanson sold narcotics to an undercover police officer, police said.

A search of her residence yielded a small amount of heroin and empty bags containing heroin residue inside Hanson’s bedroom, police said.
