NORWALK, Conn. — A 26-year-old Norwalk man led officers on a foot chase through the Colonial Village housing complex Sunday night after a suspected drug sale, police said.
Officers on patrol from the special services unit came across two men who they believed had engaged in a hand-to-hand drug sale at 8:13 p.m., police said.
As officers approached, Adonnus Elliott began to walk away, police said. When officers ordered him to stop, Elliott began walking away at a “brisk” pace, police said.
As officers closed in, Elliott took off and ran through the housing complex, disregarding commands to stop, police said.
He then entered a home on Suncrest Road and locked the door behind him, police said.
Officers surrounded the home and spoke with several people sitting on the porch, who let them go inside and take custody of Elliott, police said.
He was charged with third-degree burglary, interfering with an officer and first-degree criminal trespass. His bond was set at $75,000 with a court date of Aug. 2, police said.
