October 3, 2018

STAMFORD - A suspected Bridgeport drug dealer struggled with police and was sent to Stamford Hospital for the treatment of minor injuries when officers closed in on him at the Stamford railroad station Friday afternoon.

Capt. Richard Conklin said officers in the Narcotics and Organized Crime squad heard on the street that a man known as “T” would be at the Stamford railroad Station would have some heroin for sale.

Police had a description of the man and kept an eye out at the station and at about 4:30 p.m. spotted a man, Tomas Camacho, 30 of Lyon Terrace, who fit “T’s” description, Conklin said. When they walked up to him and told him they were police, Camacho began fighting with the officers and was quickly taken to the ground, where he continued to struggle, Conklin said.

After getting him into handcuffs, Conklin said police searched Camacho and allegedly found 10 unstamped glassine folds of what appeared to be heroin, Conklin said.

After taking Camacho to the hospital, he was booked on charges of possession of narcotics with intent to sell and resisting arrest. He was released after posting a $5,000 court appearance bond.
