A Danbury man found with 66 grams of cocaine in his underwear has been arrested. Detectives from the Special Investigations Division were conducting a surveillance operation of a person known to them for past narcotics violations. A new investigation was launched several months ago into 36-year old Lenny Cubilette.
During surveillance yesterday, Detectives observed him meeting up with a person, getting into their vehicle for a short period of time, and exiting. His actions were consistent with drug sales. Detectives blocked in his car in a Federal Road parking lot and he attempted to flee, striking one of the vehicles.
Cubilette was removed from the car and taken into custody. A search at the police station turned up the powder and crack cocaine. His car and $977 were also seized.
Cubilette was charged with possession of over 1 ounce of crack with intent to sell, possession of under 1 ounce with intent to sell, 2 counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of interfering with the duties of a police officer. He was held on $100,000 bond.
