News release from Acting Deputy Chief Chris Corbett of the Waterbury Police Department

   The Waterbury Police Department has concluded a six-week undercover investigation into illegal drug activity in and around the Angel Drive area. The investigation was conducted by the Department’s Vice & Intelligence Division and the Street Crime Unit and it was initiated in response to numerous citizen complaints of hand to hand street level drug sales in that neighborhood.

   During the past six weeks undercover officers have purchased both crack cocaine and heroin from ten individuals in the Angel Drive area. Arrest warrants were obtained charging these ten suspects with Sale of Narcotics and they were taken into custody during a round up yesterday afternoon and last night. During the round up, three additional suspects were also arrested on Possession of Narcotics charges for a total of thirteen suspects.

   Two search warrants were also executed at apartments on Angel Drive and a firearm and a significant amount of illegal drugs were seized. The total evidence seized was a 9 mm handgun, 1455 bags of heroin, 405 grams of crack cocaine, 190 grams of powder cocaine, and 184 grams of raw heroin.

Reyes’ apartment was where the most evidence was seized and it appears to have been the center of the illegal drug activity in the area.
