June 29, 2018 GMT

STAMFORD-Two Bridgeport men were busted while making a heroin delivery to the southbound Interstate-95 rest area in Darien earlier this week.

Stamford police Capt. Richard Conklin said officers in the Narcotics and Organized Crime squad became aware that a black male named “Moses” would be making a delivery of some heroin to the southbound service plaza just past Exit 10 on Tuesday.

They were told that a black man named “Moses” would be making the delivery in a black Hundai Sonata and that he was about 50 years old. At about 5:30 p.m. a black Sonata pulled up with a black male about 50 years old in the passenger seat.

When the male, later identified as Carl Young, 51, of Bridgeport, saw the officers walking up to the car, he threw a blue washcloth into the center console of the car.

When police checked, they found 50 bags of heroin, worth about $20 each on the street inside the washcloth, Conklin said.

Young was charged with possession of narcotics with intent to sell and conspiracy to possess narcotics with intent to sell and was held in lieu of a $25,000 court appearance bond.

The driver of the Sonata, Anthony Risi, 47, of Bridgeport, was charged with conspiracy to possess narcotics with intent to sell. Conklin said Risi told them that he knew Young was delivering heroin to the rest stop.
