October 2, 2018

STAMFORD — Police say they intercepted another drug deal at an East Side motel notorious for narcotics.

Capt. Richard Conklin said officers in the Narcotics and Organized Crime squad heard that a man would bring heroin to the Red Carpet Inn on East Main Street on Friday afternoon.

Officers conducted surveillance of the motel, which is formerly known as America’s Best Value Inn.

The officers spotted an Acura TL pull into the parking lot and recognized the man as the person they were told would be making the delivery.

Conklin said officers found nine folds of heroin, two knotted bags of marijuana weighing six grams and five grams of crack cocaine inside a pocket in the driver’s side door. Conklin said officers also found eight Oxycodone pills.

Kahshem Dayzon Douglas, 28, of Howard Avenue, was charged with possession of narcotics with intent to sell and possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.

Douglas was released after posting a $15,000 court appearance bond.
