Three local men were arrested by Greenwich Police e on drug charges on July 19.
Early on Friday morning Greenwich Police served numerous search and arrest warrants at a residence on Bertolf Road, which is off Sound Beach Ave Ext, as a result of a drug investigation.
“This case was an excellent example of the hard work our investigators conduct in order to stem the flow of illegal narcotics entering our community,” said Greenwich Police Captain Robert Berry. “Individuals, like drug dealers, who prey upon the vulnerable will continue to be a top enforcement priority of the police department.”

After establishing probably cause from surveillance and informants and obtaining the approval of the courts, Greenwich Police conducted a planned and controlled enforcement operation at the targeted residence where they found significant quantities of drugs.
