Danbury man arrested on drug related offenses

A Danbury man has been arrested on drug related offenses.  Danbury Police started an investigation into 47-year old Derrick "Country" Wiggins after receiving multiple neighbor complaints about illicit sales, including from the location he was arrested yesterday on Mill Ridge Road. 

As he parked and exited his vehicle, people that were loitering in the area approached him.  When the surveillance team moved in to execute court-ordered search warrants, Wiggins attempted to flee and was seen discarding drugs.  He was taken into custody after a short struggle. 

Police then went to his High Ridge Road home and found a significant quantity of heroin, crack cocaine, money, and drug paraphernalia.  As a convicted felon with eight prior convictions for selling illicit drugs, he was held for a cash bond.

Wiggins was charged with two counts each of possession of a Controlled Substance, possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a Controlled Substance With Intent to Sell Within 1500’ School, and possession of a Controlled Substance Within 1500’ School.  He was also charged with interfering with the duties of a Police Officer and operating a motor vehicle without a license.
