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.
Rojas-Dominguez was charged with possession of narcotics, possession with intent to sell, criminal attempt to sell narcotics, possession of narcotics within 1500 feet of a school, possession of narcotics with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was held on $25,000 bond.
