A Fairfield man was arrested in late October after an investigation revealed he allegedly sold large amounts of prescription drugs to individuals in the greater Bridgeport area, Fairfield police announced Monday.
Timothy Andrews, 54, of Garden Drive, faces three counts of illegal sale of narcotics, three counts of possession of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a school, failure to keep prescription drugs in their original containers, and possession of a weapon in a vehicle, according to the police report.
The Fairfield Police Narcotics Unit made the arrest following a two-month investigation, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said. During the investigation, Andrews allegedly sold numerous amounts of narcotic prescription drugs to an undercover officer on several occasions from his home (located near Fairfield Warde High School, Fairfield Woods Middle School, and Jennings School) and other locations.
During the investigation, over 500 narcotic prescription pills -- including oxycodone and Opana pills -- were seized after detectives executed search warrants for Andrews' home and car, according to the report.
Detectives also reportedly found a stun gun in Andrews' vehicle, Lussier said.
He was held in lieu of a $50,000 bond and first appeared in court on Nov. 5. He is next due in court on Dec. 5.
