NORWALK, Conn. – A 31-year-old Norwalk man was arrested on multiple narcotics charges Wednesday after officers caught him in the midst of a drug deal and subsequently found a large quantity of heroin and crack cocaine in his possession, police said.
Lincoln Street resident Dale Washington, who goes by the street name “City,” was arrested on Norden Place in Norwalk at about 4:45 p.m. while he was making a drug deal, according to Lt. Jim Walsh.
Washington tried to run from police, but the department’s K-9 officer Czar tracked him down and bit him on the leg, which required treatment at Norwalk Hospital, Walsh said.
After the arrest, police raided an unnamed location where Washington had been before his arrest and discovered 42 bags of heroin and 12 grams of crack cocaine, he said.
The department had four warrants for Washington’s arrest on separate possession and sale of narcotics charges, and added additional similar charges from Wednesday’s incident, and also added an interfering with an officer charge, Walsh said.
Washington was held on $250,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Thursday.
