KILLINGLY, Conn. (WTNH) — Connecticut State Police have arrested a 23-year-old man who they say was selling crack cocaine from his Killingly home.

State Troopers executed several narcotic search and seizure warrants at 33 Mechanic Street, Apt A in Killingly on Friday evening after an investigation showed that 23-year-old Marcus Gordon was allegedly selling crack cocaine from his home.

When officials got into the home and began searching, they say they found numerous crack cocaine rocks pre-packaged for sale hidden in a Dr. Pepper can.

Troopers say there were two children, ages ranging from six to eight, living in the home, so DCF was contacted.

Gordon was arrested and charged with possession of narcotics and possession with intent to sell. He is held on a $50,000 bond and is due in court on June 1.

Troopers say the investigation was prompted by several citizen complaints of increased narcotic activity in the area.
