WALLINGFORD >> Two men face several charges after police say a months-long investigation found they were selling drugs from the apartment they shared in Wallingford.

Jeremy Rodriguez, 30, and Heriberto “Eddie” Lebron, 42, were arrested Thursday at the Judd Square Apartment Complex, 44 S. Cherry St., police Lt. Michael Colavolpe said Monday in a release.

Colavolpe, who heads the detective division, said investigators had gathered information over several months about alleged drug sales at the apartment.

Rodriguez was taken into custody Thursday as he was leaving the complex and was charged with making crack cocaine sales to a police informant.

Police served a search warrant at the apartment and allegedly found crack cocaine and Xanax inside along with Lebron.

As investigators were serving the warrant, a customer of Lebron’s arrived at the apartment to buy crack cocaine. That customer cooperated with police, which led to Lebron’s arrest.

Rodriguez was charged with three counts of selling narcotics and four counts of possession of narcotics. He was held in lieu of $51,000 bail pending an appearance Monday in Meriden Superior Court.

Lebron was charged with possession of narcotics with the intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on $5,000 bail and is to appear Nov. 23 in Meriden Superior Court.
