The FBI and Danbury Police raided a City man's home yesterday and seized more than $30,000 and cocaine.  An investigation began weeks ago after neighbors complained about illegal drug sales.  Danbury Police obtained search and seizure warrants for 41-year old Ivan Rojas Dominguez, his car, and his Abbott Avenue home. 

 

During a moving surveillance of Rojas-Dominguez shortly before midnight, officers stopped him as he was about to make a suspected drug transaction in the parking lot of a Mill Plain Road business.  He was in possession of a substantial amount of money and drugs. 

 

After being taken into custody, Police found drug paraphernalia associated with trafficking, several ounces of cocaine and tens of thousands of dollars in Rojas-Dominguez's bedroom.  The other occupants of the home were not suspected to be involved in the illicit business.
