NORWALK, Conn. -- A Norwalk man was arrested after he was accused of selling crack, according to police.
Trevard Samuel, 27, was charged with multiple counts of sale of narcotics and possession of narcotics. He was held on $150,000 bond and will appear in court July 17.
The arrest stems from an investigation conducted by the Special Services Division. Officers began the investigation on Feb. 20, when they learned of a crack dealer in Norwalk operating under the nickname "Black." Police were told by a cooperating witness that the dealer would arrange meetings by cell phone and sell crack cocaine.
The witness set up a sale and purchased three plastic bags of crack from "Black," whom police recognized as Samuel from past interactions, according to police reports. The witness positively identified Black as Samuel through a photo array, police said. The cooperating witness arranged and carried out two additional purchases with Samuel on Feb. 27 and March 16. Each time the witness purchased crack and identified the seller as Samuel. Warrants for Samuel's arrest were applied for and issued.
On Tuesday evening Special Services officers spotted a black Jaguar traveling on West Avenue near Belden Avenue and recognized the driver as Samuel. Knowing that he had three active warrants out for his arrest, the officers pulled Samuel over and took him into custody without incident.
