WINDSOR LOCKS — A 57-year-old woman from Windsor Locks is facing several charges after police said she was operating a prescription drug factory.

On Thursday, August 4, officers with the North Central Narcotics Task Force served a warrant at the woman’s home on North Street.

Police said Christine Miles had thousands of illegal prescription pills, over 2 pounds of marijuana, and about $10,000 in cash. The pills totaled about $50,000 in street value, police said.

“Clearly illegal drug use and abuse has a deteriorating effect on our community as it has in other areas,” the Windsor Locks Police Department wrote on their Facebook page. “Although its a long and arduous process, the WLPD will continue to investigate, arrest and present for prosecution those who contribute to the addiction of our residents through the supply and sale of illegal narcotics, pills, and other illegal substances.”

The North Central Narcotics Task Force includes officers from Enfield, Windsor Locks, East Windsor, and Suffield police departments.

Miles is charged with possession of narcotics with intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, operating a drug factory, and failure to keep narcotic drugs in original containers.

She is being held on $300,000 bond and could face more charges, police said.
