A New Milford man has been arrested on drug related charges, and also risk of injury because there was a toddler in the car. 25-year old Ryan Santos was the focus of a several week investigation related to drug sales throughout the Danbury area. He was stopped yesterday afternoon after police saw him engage in suspicious activity.
Santos was followed to a local bank drive-thru and apprehended.
A 20-month-old was in the rear passenger area, where police also found heroin packaged for sale, a substantial amount of U.S. currency and drug paraphernalia. The vehicle was towed and the toddler was turned over to DCF.
Santos was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia and risk of injury to a child.
