Resident complaints about drug sales in Danbury have led to the arrests of three people.  Danbury Police charged Dontee Heyliger and Duane Usher Perkins on Thursday for various drug offenses.  Police set up surveillance at the Bayberry Lane home of the 38-years-olds and saw Heyliger driving away to a parking lot of an office building on Germantown Road.  He was seen meeting with a woman, waving her arms in the air as he came into view. 

The pair engaged in a hand-to-hand transaction, and police stepped in.  Heyliger and 64-years-old Linda Andreasen of New Milford, were found in possession of illegal drugs.

A search of the home led to a substantial quantity of Ecstacy tablets and money, powder cocaine and drug paraphernalia.  All three were charged and later released.

Both men were charged with two counts each of possession of a Controlled Substance, possession with intent to sell, possession within 1,500 feet of a school, and possession with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school, and one count each of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of drug paraphernalia within 1,500 feet of a school.  Heyliger was charged with one addition count each of possession and possession with intent to sell.
