WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH) — A 23-year-old Hartford man has been arrested following an investigation into heroin sales in the state.
The Regional Community Enhancement Task Force, DEA, and Windsor and Hartford Police Departments were investigating heroin sales from Hartford to Southeastern Connecticut, which they say led them to 23-year-old Jeffrey Jean-Philippe of Hartford.
On Wednesday, police seized approximately 670 bags of heroin packaged for sale, 12 grams of crack cocaine, $2,000 cash, Alprazolam pills, and a Mercedes Benz.
An investigation also led them to a home in Windsor, which they believed was the stash house. After getting a search warrant, police found a drug factory operation where they say heroin was being processed and packaged. There they seized approximately 70 grams of suspected uncut heroin, crack cocaine, scales, and other packing and processing materials.
Officials say the estimated street value of the drugs seized is around $60,000.
Jean-Philippe is charged with operating a drug factory, possession of crack cocaine with intent to sell, possession of heroin with intent to sell, and possession of a controlled substance. Jean-Philippe posted $250,000 bond and is due in court on May 10.
