NORWICH, Conn. (WTNH) — Norwich police have busted two people for trying to sell heroin on Craigslist.

Police say they got an anonymous call from a Norwich resident, tipping them off that 18-year-old Alexis Chidester had an ad on Craigslist offering heroin.

They set up an undercover meeting where they were greeted by Chidester and her 28-year-old boyfriend Thomas Birbeck. Police say Birbeck and Chidester showed up with hundreds of dollars of prepackaged heroin.

Both are facing charges of possession of Heroin and possession of heroin with intent to sell. They were both released on $25,000.00 non-surety bonds.

They will be back in court July 24th.
