NORWALK, Conn. — A man arrested last month on drug charges for allegedly selling heroin is facing new heroin-related charges, Norwalk Police said Wednesday.
Richard Vann, 59, of 1 North Ave., is charged with possession of a narcotic and sale of narcotics after he was arrested at his residence Tuesday morning.
His bond was set at $50,000.
Lt. Jim Walsh, special services commander, said police had warrants for Vann's arrest for heroin dealing in the past six months. He said the warrants had recently come back for his arrest and police executed them Tuesday.
"He was arrested without incident and we had been looking for him for the last couple of weeks," Walsh said. "Warrants came back, we had made controlled purchases of heroin from him in the past six months."
Vann was arrested in mid-January after a police officer noticed him in a Cadillac and knew he didn't have a driver's license and discovered what they suspect was heroin in his possession, police said.
He has numerous prior drug-related convictions, according to the state's judicial website.
