DANBURY, Conn. — A Danbury man facing charges related to the heroin business he ran out of his Linden Place home, has been charged with additional drug charges this week after police discovered him with drugs again, according to Newstimes.com.
Richard Cardwell, 55, was originally charged in late July after Danbury Police Department investigators found him trying to flush heroin down the toilet when they executed a search warrant on his home following a months-long investigation, police said.
However, due to the large amount of drugs, it clogged the toilet and was retrieved before it was destroyed. The package contained 230 prepackaged bags of heroin, according to police.
Investigators returned to the home this week for another search, when Cardwell was seen getting out of a car. When he saw officers, Cardwell ran, but was caught by police nearby. Officer found another 30 bags of heroin on Cardwell, in addition to another taped bag containing 20 bags of heroin on the ground nearby, Newstimes.com said.
Cardwell is being held on a $100,000 bond, Newstimes.com.added.
