Investigators arrested a Danbury man on charges of drug possession on Wednesday. 

In August of 2018, the Special Investigations Division arrested a suspected drug dealer, Christopher Marcos, 23 of Danbury, as he was in the process of depositing drug proceeds in local banks. As a result, drugs, money and a firearm were seized.

On Wednesday, Marcos was arrested for a variety of drug related offenses to a new investigation and the issuance of court authorized search and seizure warrants.

According to police, Marcos was the focus of a several week investigation related to drug sales from his residence, 41 Osborne Street and throughout the Danbury area. The investigation was initiated after investigators received citizen complaints regarding Marcos’ illegal activity. 

After obtaining the proper warrants to continue the case, investigators established a surveillance of Marcos’ residence and witnessed Marcos leave his residence driving a vehicle registered to a relative. As he was stuck in traffic, investigators were able to prevent his vehicle from driving away. Thereafter, Marcos repeatedly refused to exit his vehicle when ordered and had to be forcibly extracted.

Marcos was found to be in possession of several hundred dollars in U.S. currency and a substantial quantity of illicit drugs. He was placed under arrest and charged with possession of controlled substances and held on a $150,000 bond.
