A Greenwich man was arrested Wednesday after police searched his home and found drugs within easy access of his 6-year-old son. Police were sent to the residence to check on the welfare of the child. Once inside, they found the house in "disarray," and conditions were unsanitary for a child.
While speaking to the man, police noticed a small Ziploc bag containing nine pills within easy access of the child. Members of the narcotics section executed a search-and-seizure warrant and found narcotics, drug paraphernalia, marijuana, drug records and cash.
He was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, operating a drug factory, risk of injury to a minor, illegal storage of narcotics, possession of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a school and possession with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school. The man was held on $25,000 bond and is due in court Jan 12.
