WALLINGFORD >> A local man is to appear in court Wednesday after Wallingford police say he went to make a heroin sale at an apartment complex.
Harvey Jennings III, 25, was found with 220 bags of heroin Tuesday morning after investigators interrupted the drug deal, said Lt. Michael Colavolpe, the commander of the department’s detective division.
Colavolpe said the Narcotics Unit got a tip at about 9 a.m. that Jennings would be going to the Southwind Apartments, 181 Southwind Drive, to make a sale. Police had recently found that Jennings was a heroin supplier in town, Colavolpe said.
Detectives allegedly saw Jennings arrive at the complex and meet up with a potential buyer. They took Jennings into custody and found 140 bags of heroin, 10 Xanax pills and $600 cash on him, police said. More heroin was found in his vehicle, they said.
Jennings, whose last known address was in the 300 block of Grieb Road, was charged with possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with the intent to sell and possession of a controlled substance. He was held in lieu of $50,000 bail pending his court appearance.
