NORWALK, Conn. -- Two Norwalk residents were arrested Wednesday after they bought heroin in Bridgeport and intended to distribute it in Norwalk, police said.
Eric Spielman, 22, and Robin Williams, 53, were each charged with possession of narcotics and selling narcotics. Spielman was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and held on $10,000 bond. Williams was held on $5,000 bond. Both will appear in court July 18.
The Norwalk Police Special Services Division received information from a citizen informer that Spielman and Williams were headed to Bridgeport to pick up heroin and bring it back to Norwalk for distribution, according to police.
Officers set up surveillance of the two and followed Spielman to Bridgeport on Wednesday, police said. They saw Spielman purchase heroin in the West End of Bridgeport and drive back to Norwalk, according to police. He got off at Exit 17 of Interstate 95 south and was stopped, police said.
Officers could see two-and-a-half bundles of heroin on the floor of his car, police said. While the officers were detaining Spielman, he received texts from Williams asking about the deal and when he would be returning, police said.
They arranged for Williams to meet to pick up her heroin, at which point she was also taken into custody, police said.
