Wallingford man arrested on marijuana charges


WALLINGFORD — A local man was arrested for alleged sale and possession of marijuana Wednesday afternoon.

Lt. Rick Homestead of the Wallingford police said an investigation by the department’s narcotics unit uncovered evidence that Vincent Narvaez, 23, of 250 South Orchard St., was both selling and using marijuana. The department obtained a search and seizure warrant for Narvaez to accompany a prior arrest warrant stemming from alleged marijuana offenses in the summer, Homestead said.

Homestead said Narvaez was apprehended outside of his home at 1:22 p.m. Wednesday. A search of his home and car yielded more than an ounce of marijuana, as well as paraphernalia consistent with both marijuana use and sale, such as scales.

Narvaez was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, and possession of marijuana with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school. The latter charge was filed because the suspect’s home is only about 1,000 feet from Heritage Baptist School on South Whittlesey Avenue, Homestead said.

Narvaez also faces additional charges from the original arrest warrant, including sale of marijuana, sale of marijuana within 1,500 feet of a school, and possession of marijuana under a half-ounce.

Narvaez is being held on a $50,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Dec. 6.
