Newtown police: Juvenile charged with conspiracy to sell drugs

April 11, 2019

NEWTOWN — A juvenile was arrested and charged with conspiracy to sell a controlled substance following a traffic stop Sunday night.

It all started around 11:45 p.m., when police stopped a vehicle on Pecks Lane and discovered there was a juvenile with an active arrest warrant inside.

The warrant stemmed from a 2018 arrest, where another juvenile was found in possession of 1,000 Xanax pills, police said.

A warrant for a second juvenile’s arrest was issued following an investigation by School Resource Officer Richard Monckton and the Newtown Police Department’s patrol division, police said.
