Scyoc writes under the pseudonym K.A. Robinson. Her books have included the “Torn” and “Ties” fiction series. At least one of them made The New York Times best-seller list.

Court records show a Bridgeport police officer pulled over a vehicle driven by Scyoc on Interstate 79 for an improper lane change. Authorities say a vehicle search turned up bags containing a crystal-like substance believed to be methamphetamine, powder-like substances and digital scales. A passenger also was arrested.

It wasn’t immediately known whether Scyoc has an attorney who could comment.
