A Norwalk man was arrested on felony charges Thursday after police raided an apartment following a tip about narcotics being distributed from there.
The Norwalk Police Department, a member of METRICH, a 10-county drug task force, executed the search warrant at 212 Concord Court.
Information was received indicating 23-year-old Jason Wayne Bryant, also known as “Grape,” was selling marijuana and heroin, Norwalk Police Detective Sgt. Fry said.
During an investigation, it was confirmed illegal narcotics were being distributed from that residence, Fry said. A search warrant was granted by Norwalk Municipal Court Judge Eric R. Weisenburger.
At 5:33 p.m., Norwalk police detectives, with the assistance of uniformed officers, executed the search warrant. Inside the residence, investigators found more than 200 grams of marijuana, some packaged for sale, as well as digital scales, plastic bags for packaging the marijuana, a 9mm handgun and heroin.
Bryant was arrested and booked into the Huron County Jail on felony charges of possessing more than 200 grams of marijuana, possession of heroin and possession of criminal tools.
This investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are likely, Fry said.
“We would like to encourage residents who suspect illegal activity in their neighborhoods to call the Norwalk Police Department,” Fry said. “Information can be left anonymously.”
