Multiple people arrested in connection with New Britain drug bust

NEW BRITAIN — Police arrested multiple people in a large-scale drug bust called, “Operation Heat Wave” Friday.

According to the  New Britain Police Department Facebook page, police received several complaints over the last several months from citizens of the North and Oak Street neighborhood complaining about drug dealing and usage.

Several weeks of investigation culminated in a one day “round-up” by police with the assistance from several public agencies including Hartford area Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the New Britain Probation, New Britain Fire Department.

“Today’s initiative is the product of several weeks of collaboration with the residents of the North/Oak Community and the New Britain Police Department, ” said New Britain Police Chief Christopher Chute. “‘Operation: Heat Wave’ would not have been a success without the tips and complaints reported by the neighborhood residents.”

“Operation Heat Wave” also lead to a search to a building on Clark Street in the city.

Officers seized 61 bags of fentanyl, 124 pills of oxycodone, three suboxone films, 52 generic Xanax pills, three digital scales with cocaine residue, crack cocaine, two drug ledgers and drug paraphernalia.
