A 72-year-old Bridgeport man was arrested Thursday for allegedly selling drugs in Fairfield and growing pot in his residence, police said.
Detectives conducted a month-long investigation after receiving information about someone selling drugs in Fairfield. Police developed Peter Mozeleski of Morehouse Street as a suspect, according to the report.
Police obtained search warrants for both Mozeleski's home and car and executed both on Thursday, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said.
They found oxycodone, other assorted drugs, cash, and marijuana cigarettes in the car. Officers then searched Mozelski's home and found over 8 ounces of marijuana, several thousands of dollars in cash, potting soil, marijuana seeds, a notebook detailing marijuana growth, a scale, and packaging material, according to the report.
Mozeleski was charged with possession of over 4 ounces of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, failure to keep narcotics in their original container, and possession of less than 4 ounces of marijuana for the cigarettes found in the car.
He was released after posting a $20,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 11.
