TORRINGTON — Two city men have been charged after a failed attempt to sell crack cocaine to a plain clothes officer, police said.
Damon L. Spencer, 41, of 212 East Pearl St., second-floor apartment, and Derrick T. Burden, 38, of 162 Central Ave., first-floor apartment, were arrested on the evening of Nov. 18 and charged with tampering with evidence, interfering with an officer, conspiracy to commit sale of narcotic, possession of narcotic, possession of drug paraphernalia in a school zone and possession of narcotic in a school zone.
Two officers were dispatched as part of the Community Enhancement Unit to the north end, near Prospect Street and Prospect Place, “where information has been obtained of recent narcotic use and sales in the area,” according to a probable cause report.
An officer was walking past 619 Prospect St., wearing plain clothes, when a man left the home and began speaking with him. The man, later identified as Spencer, said he recognized the officer, who attempted to walk away. The man continued to speak to him, saying that the officer “had previously introduced him to a female named Missy at a party he had attended.”
“Due to my observations of Spencer, it was clear to me I had never met him in person and (do not) have any knowledge of his claims,” said the officer.
Spencer “then used verbiage that is consistent with language used to engage in his involvement (with) narcotic activity I asked him if he was partying, to which he replied ‘what you need,’” said the officer. “Due to my training and experience (I knew) Spencer was asking me what kind of drugs would I want to buy to which I responded ‘hard.’”
Hard is a slang term for crack cocaine, the officer said in the report.
Spencer said he would sell him a bag of crack cocaine for $40 and walked back to the home, according to the report.
“Spencer then suddenly turned and asked if I was a cop, to which I told him I was not,” said the officer in the report.
Spencer walked into the apartment and came out with another man, later identified as Burden. Due to a misunderstanding over whether the officer had already paid for the drugs, Burden handed the officer a bag of what appeared to be crack cocaine without money being exchanged.
The second officer then arrived on scene, according to the report.
The officer attempted to arrest Spencer, “prominently displaying (his) police issued badge” around his neck. Spencer struggled and resisted commands, and the officer dropped the bag of crack cocaine, according to the report.
Burden attempted to “hide and destroy the bag” by dragging his feet on it, while Spencer fled back into the apartment, police said. The second officer followed and found him inside, along with a crack pipe, which he was later determined to have discarded after entering the space, police said.
Both Burden and Spencer were held in lieu of $50,000 surety bail. They were scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Torrington Nov. 20.

TORRINGTON — A Litchfield man was recently arrested after Torrington officers found him in possession of heroin after asking about his recent trip to Waterbury, police said.
Richard Bohner, 45, of 21 Johnson Road, was arrested Nov. 12 and charged with possession of narcotics, police said.
Two officers were on patrol near Cumberland Farms on South Main Street after responding to numerous complaints related to drug activity in the area, according to the report. Bohner walked across South Main Street into the store parking lot, where one of the officers began to speak with him.
“As we spoke Bohner commented that he took a bus to Waterbury and hung out for a while, on the ‘blacktop,’ and then came back,” said the officer.
In the report, the officer notes that, in his experience, “(d)rug dealers and users take the bus to Waterbury to purchase narcotics,” where the same drugs are less expensive than in Torrington, and “(t)he area known as ‘the blacktop’ is a short walk from where the bus stop is and is notorious for narcotic sales.”
“I continued to speak to Bohner and after a period of time asked if he had any drugs, weapons or needles on him,” the officer said in the report. “Bohner immediately stopped talking and looked away. It is my training and experience both of these are signs of stress.”
Bohner was searching for the ‘right’ answer to the question, the officer said. Bohner put his head down, a sign of resignation, and then said “I do… I have heroin,” according to the report.
Bohner gave officers a pill bottle which contained two bags of heroin and pills, which he “said were two (different) prescribed medications but not prescribed to him.”
“He declined to go into additional detail of where he obtained the heroin or pills,” said the officer.
The pills were later identified as Lorazepam, police said. Lorazepam is an anti-anxiety medication which “works by slowing activity in the brain to allow for relaxation” and can be habit forming, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
Bohner was released on a promise to appear and scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Torrington Nov. 21, police said.
Bohner was also arrested Nov. 15 and charged with possession of heroin, possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana and possession in a school zone, police said in a separate release.
He was released on a $1,500 non-surety bond and scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Torrington Nov. 27 in that case.

TORRINGTON — A city man is facing narcotics charges after Torrington police say they caught him flushing heroin down the toilet.
John J. Hobson, 46, of 2 Perkins St., Torrington, was arrested Wednesday and charged with two counts of sale of narcotic substance, interfering with an officer, tampering with physical evidence, two counts of possession of a controlled substance or more than a half-ounce of marijuana and use of drug paraphernalia, according to court records.
Two Torrington police officers saw two men known to be drug users leaving Village South Condominium Wednesday afternoon and met them on South Main Street, according to a probable cause report.
It was eventually determined that one of the men was in possession of 10 bags of heroin, which he bought from a man known as “John Boy,” a resident of the complex.
According to the report, Torrington police had previously received information that a white man known as “John Boy” was selling heroin out of his home and drove a black Nissan determined to be registered to a John Hobson.
A record check indicated that Hobson was a convicted felon with a criminal history in New York and Connecticut, according to the report. Police later arrested Hobson after obtaining and executing a search warrant, according to the report.
“Hobson attempted to flush multiple bags of heroin down the toilet on initial entry but was apprehended in the act,” said a city police officer in the report. “Items located inside this apartment coincide with the purchase, use and sale of narcotics such as heroin, marijuana, scales, and a large sum of cash in small denominations.”
Hobson was arrested and was arraigned Thursday in Superior Court in Torrington, according to court records. Bail was set at $25,000 cash or surety and the case was continued to Dec. 13.

TORRINGTON — A city resident was charged with possession with intent to sell after being found with 3.5 ounces of marijuana during a traffic stop, police said.
Sean P. Cote, 23, of 267 Circle Drive, was arrested Nov. 5 and also charged with possession of a controlled substance or less than a half-ounce of marijuana, possession in a school zone, possession of drug paraphernalia in a school zone and possession of narcotics.
An officer saw a vehicle driven by Cote fail to completely stop at the intersection of Harwinton Avenue and Hill Street and conducted a traffic stop, according to a probable cause report. There was “a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the interior of the vehicle,” police wrote in the report.
Cote told the officer he had marijuana in his pocket and in a backpack in the vehicle, according to the report.
When searching the backpack, the officer found three mason jars containing a total of 3.5 ounces of marijuana, a mason jar containing rice, small and larger plastic bags, rubber bands and a scale, according to the report. Six Xanax tablets were also found in the vehicle, police said.
“Based on my training and experience, when an individual possesses a large amount of marijuana combined with unused plastic bags, rubber bands, and a scale, it means they are preparing to weight different amounts of marijuana and package it for sales purposes,” said the officer.
When asked about the jar of rice, Cote told the officer he had it for a while, but previously used it to dry out cocaine.
“I asked Sean why he had all the packaging supplies, scale and marijuana and he refused to answer the question. I asked Sean if he sold the marijuana and he informed me the items have been in his vehicle for a very long time,” said the officer. “Sean did not ever admit to selling the marijuana but did admit to having (it) for his personal use… I did not (locate) any paraphernalia that would suggest marijuana use but I did locate the proof that he divides the larger amount into smaller weighed out amounts for sale.”
Cote was arrested and held in lieu of a $2,500 cash bond ahead of a Monday court appearance, police said. He was arraigned Monday in Superior Court in Torrington, where his bond was set at $5,000 cash or surety and the case was continued until Nov. 28.
TORRINGTON — A Torrington man was recently arrested and charged after officers responded to a report of the abduction of a child and found marijuana in his car, according to city police.
Carlos Torres, 38, of 27 Whiting Ave., Torrington, was arrested Nov. 1 and charged with possession of less than four ounces of marijuana, use/possession of drug paraphernalia — more than a half-ounce of marijuana, use of drug paraphernalia, risk of injury to child and operating a motor vehicle under suspension.
Multiple city police officers responded to Prospect Street for a report of a potential abduction of a child by a parent just after 6 p.m. on Nov. 1, according to a probable cause report.
Torres had already returned with the child when the officer writing the report arrived on scene, according to the report.
The officer noticed an open tool bag “containing several cigar packages that I know through my training and experience to be used for smoking marijuana,” and the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle, according to the report.
Torres admitted that the bag belonged to him and that it contained marijuana and a grinder, according to police.
While searching the bag, the officer also found a pill bottle containing tobacco and razor blades, a portion of a straw containing a white paper residue, a single rolled up dollar bill and a piece of a torn plastic bag, police said.
“Because Torres was in possession of the above drug paraphernalia in (which a) juvenile was located and within arms reach, while operating with a suspended license, Carlos was placed into custody and charged,” said the officer.
Torres was released on $500 surety bail and scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Torrington Nov. 9, police said.
