DANBURY, Conn. -- Officers seized "substantial" amounts of crack cocaine, heroin and marijuana Wednesday and arrested four people after raiding a suspected drug den in Danbury, police said.
A fifth person was also arrested after police found a 3-year-old child inside the apartment, police said.
Allison Hallock, 20, and Daeshaun Boyd, 26, both of Danbury, and Laquen Glasgow, 21, and Matthew Morris, 26, both of Brooklyn, N.Y., were arrested after investigators executed a warrant at Apartment 197 at the Brookside Condominium complex, 7 Padanaram Road.
Danbury police said they began investigating the apartment near Henry Abbott Tech High School after receiving numerous complaints about drug activity there. After obtaining a search warrant, the department's Special Investigations Division, aided by the Community Conditions and K-9 units, raided the apartment about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.
In addition to the drugs, police said they found and seized a "large amount of cash."
All four were charged with three counts of possession of narcotics, two counts of possession of narcotics with intent to sell, two counts of possession of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a school, three counts of possession of narcotics with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school, one count of possession of crack cocaine with intent to sell, one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, one count of possession of drug paraphernalia within 1,500 feet of a school, and one count of possession of a controlled substance.
Each was held on $100,000 bond.
Also arrested as a result of the operation was Vanessa Grant, 27, of Danbury, police said. She was charged with risk of injury to a minor and released on a promise to appear. She is to appear in court Tuesday.
Police did not specify the exact relationship between Grant and the child and did not say whether the child had sustained any injuries.
