LOWELL —A Lowell woman was arrested on drug charges following the execution of a search warrant at her residence in the city's Acre neighborhood earlier this month, authorities say.

Sarenth Sok, 34, was found in possession of 12 ½ grams of crack cocaine and 10 strips of 8-milligram Suboxone strips inside her home at 1 Walker St., according to Lowell police Capt. James Hodgdon.

Suboxone is a medication that is typically used to treat opioid addiction.

The Lowell Police Special Investigations Section also seized an undisclosed amount of cash during the search of the home, which Hodgdon said took place June 6.

Police charged Sok with possession of a Class B substance with intent to distribute in a school zone and possession of a Class B substance.

Following her arrest, Sok was arraigned in Lowell District Court, where Judge Barbara Pearson ordered her released on personal recognizance, according to Elizabeth Vlock, a spokeswoman for the Middlesex District Attorney's Office.

Pearson ordered Sok not to consume any drugs while the case is pending, according to Vlock.

Sok is scheduled to be back in court on July 31.
