Routine Traffic Stop Turns into Gun and Drug Arrest


NORWICH, Conn. (WTNH) — Police say what started out as a routine traffic stop on North Thames Street turned into a gun and drug arrest yesterday morning.

Arsenault was held on a $100,000 dollar bond.  He’s scheduled to appear at Norwich Superior Court tomorrow.
