New Yorkers are not strangers to some of its residents facing drug charges, and recently police in Norwich made felony drug charges against three individuals. They each face an additional misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child.
Police set up surveillance in a New York neighborhood after residents complained about alleged drug activity in the area. During surveillance, a 46-year-old man was observed acting suspiciously, though no details were released as to what the man was doing that police found suspicious or whether he was in the house the police had under surveillance. Police interviewed and searched the man, but provided no details to explain the basis for searching him. Nevertheless, police say they found an undisclosed amount of crack cocaine on the man and that he purportedly resisted when they moved to place him under arrest for drug charges.
