Bundle and Bags of Heroin Turn up in Motor Vehicle Stop

On Jan 7 members of the Greenwich Police Narcotics section were conducting surveillance to execute an arrest warrant on a local resident, Charlee Rodriguez, 28, of Davis Ave in Greenwich when they stopped a black Honda Civic in the area of Arch Street and Horseneck Lane and arrested Mr. Rodriguez.

Police say one of the passengers of the vehicle had an active arrest warrant with Greenwich Police for an incident back on October 3, 2019 involving stolen Apple iPhones at 356 Greenwich Avenue, which is the address associated with the Apple Store.

Rodriguez was charged with Larceny 5.

Rodriguez related that he and other occupants of the vehicle had recently gone to the Bronx and purchased heroin for the three of them to share.

He was charge with Possession of Narcotics (a Felony) in addition to the warrant charge for Larceny. Rodriguez’s bond was set at $25,000 from the Larceny charge, which he was able to post and he has a date in Stamford Superior Court on Jan 21, 2020.

Subsequent investigation revealed a passenger in the vehicle, later identified as Kasey Hernandez, 27, of Ritch Ave in Greenwich, was in possession of Narcotics. He was released on a promise to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Jan 21, 2020.

Jeffrey A Ricci, 26, of Sunset Rd in Rye Brook, NY was found in possession of a bundle of suspected heroin, syringes, and approximately three individual bags of heroin. He was charged with Possession of Narcotics (a Felony), Possession of Less Than a 1/2 Oz of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He was released on a promise to appear on Stamford Superior Court on Jan 21, 2020.

Asked about the promises to appear in court, Lt John Slusarz said,  “These three are not drug dealers. They are not a flight risk. We know who all of them are.”
