A Stamford man was busted for cocaine, pills, and pot following a warrant search of his home by members of the Stamford Police Department's Narcotics and Organized Crime Units.
The bust went down Tuesday afternoon at the home of Erwin Martinez-Dillione, 24, of Meadow Park Avenue North, following an investigation into suspected drug dealing in the area, according to Stamford Police Capt. Rich Conklin.
When officers knocked on the door to serve the warrant, Martinez-Dillione failed to answer, officers used a ram to knock down the door only to find the suspect sitting in the room, police said.
The search turned up 14 small Ziploc bags containing a half-gram of cocaine each, three bags of marijuana weighing one ounce along, 36 Alprazolam (Xanax) pills, and $1,312 in cash, Conklin said.

He is being held on $25,000 for the Stamford bust and $25,000 on the state police warrant.
