    West Haven Police Department

    Police found nearly 100 bundles of crack cocaine in a hotel after responding to a call that initially came in as a woman being attacked and arrested the person staying there. 

    Shaquina Privott, 36, of Middletown, is facing multiple charges including possession of narcotics, possession with intent to sell and other possession-related charges.

    West Haven police responded to Ecno Lodge at 370 Highland Street at about 4:30 a.m. upon receiving a complaint that a woman was screaming and being assaulted, police said. 

    When officers got there, they didn't find anyone under attack. They went door to door checking on rooms to make sure no one was hurt or needed help. 

    In one room, Privott answered the door and officers saw drugs. They seized 94 bundles of crack cocaine and arrested her. 

    Police arrested Privott and held her in custody on a bond.
