Narcotics Operation Arrest

On August 20, 2015, at 11:30 pm, Hartford Police Department's Vice and Narcotic Detectives and HPD Officers from the Central Conditions Unit conducted an undercover narcotics operation in the area of James Street and Capital Avenue. The operation was conducted in response to ongoing citizen complaints of open air drug sales taking place in and around the James Street area. HPD undercover Detectives conducted surveillance in the area and were able to observe a transaction involving a tan SUV and an unknown individual. The SUV was stopped in the parking lot of 305 Zion Street and the front seat passenger was found to be in possession of approximately five ounces of marijuana. Further investigation revealed that additional drugs and possibly a firearm were being "stashed" in an apartment at 305 Zion Street.
