An investigation of a home invasion from November led to the arrest of a 30-year-old Norwalk man on multiple drug charges, police said on Wednesday.
Detective Brendan Collins previously secured an arrest warrant for Andre Roberts of 515 West Ave. in Norwalk. This stemmed from an investigation into a home invasion that occurred on Nov. 23, 2017 at 7 Midwood Road.
