A Garden Drive man has been arrested on charges related to illegal sales of prescription drugs.
Timothy Andrews, 54, of 21 Garden Drive, was arrested Oct. 25, charged with three counts of illegal sales of narcotics, three counts of possession of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a school, failure to keep prescription drugs in their original container, and possession of a weapon in a motor vehicle.
Police announced the arrest Monday, Nov. 12.
The Fairfield Police Narcotics Unit said an investigation, which began in October, revealed that Andrews was selling large amounts of narcotic prescription medication in the greater Bridgeport area.
During the investigation, police said, Andrews sold “numerous amounts” of narcotics to an undercover officer from his residence and at other locations.
When a search warrant was executed on his residence, police said they found more than 500 prescription narcotic pills.
Police also searched a car owned by Andrews when it was found in the overflow parking lot at Kohls Oct. 18. Police said they found 60 Oxycodone pills, 29 Opana pills, an empty morphine bottle, a cell phone, cash cards and a stun gun.
Bond was set at $50,000 for court Nov. 5. According to the Connecticut Judicial Department website, Andrews is now free on a promise to appear pending his next court date on Dec. 5.
