A Danbury man has been arrested for allegedly selling drugs in the City. An investigation was launched weeks ago into multiple resident complaints about sales from Quality Inn on Federal Road.
Police set up surveillance yesterday afternoon and followed 51-year old Christopher Carolina to a Triangle Street condo complex. He was seen entering a car driven by 28-year old Sage Lundgren, but officers stopped the pair as they were in the middle of an illegal drug transaction. Police gained entry into a hotel room rented by Carolina and an adult female, where they seized several grams of crack cocaine, a quantity of heroin, drug paraphernalia and U.S. currency.
Carolina was charged with two counts each of possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to sell. He was also charged with Criminal Attempt to Sell a Controlled Substance.
Lundgren was charged with Criminal Attempt to Possess a Controlled Substance.
