Arrests made for crack cocaine sale in Wallingford

WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Two arrests were made on Monday by the Wallingford Police Department for the sale of crack cocaine. For the past few months, the Narcotics Unit at the Wallingford Police Department has been receiving information from an informant about narcotics being sold out of an apartment complex at 44 South Cherry Street.

The detectives identified the two residents of the apartment as Jeremy Rodriguez, 30, and Heriberto “Eddie” Lebron, 42.

An arrest warrant was served on Rodriguez on Thursday as he was leaving his apartment. Shortly after Rodriguez was taken into custody, a search warrant was served on the apartment.

While searching the apartment, Lebron was located inside and was taken into custody after police allegedly discovered crack cocaine and prescription medication “Xanax.” While the search was being executed, police say a customer of Lebron’s arrived to purchase crack cocaine. The customer cooperated with detectives.

Rodriguez was charged with three counts of sale of narcotics and four counts of possession of narcotics. He appeared at Meriden Superior Court on Monday and was being held on a $51,000.00 bond.

Lebron was charged with possession of narcotics with intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on a $5,000.00 bond and will appear at Meriden Superior Court on Wednesday the 23rd.
