TORRINGTON — A city woman was recently arrested after she was allegedly caught with 82 bags of heroin, according to police.
Amanda E. Bailey, 38, of 64 Washington Ave., second-floor apartment, was arrested Oct. 6 and charged with possession of narcotics – heroin, possession of narcotics – percocet, use of drug paraphernalia, and possession with intent to sell/dispense, police said.
According to a probable cause report, a Torrington police officer observed suspicious activity in the area of Palmer Bridge and Oak Avenue on the evening of Oct. 6 and identified Bailey as one of the suspects participating in the activity.
“During the encounter I observed numerous signs of nervousness and conflicting stories between the three suspects,” said the officer. “I asked Bailey (if) she had anything illegal in her possession and she informed me she had numerous percocets in her purse.”
The officer conducted a search and found 13 oxycodone pills in a brown paper bag with a ledger written on it. The officer also found eight bundles of heroin, two sim cards, and $132 in cash in Bailey’s purse, according to the report.
“Based on my training and experience, when someone keeps a written ledger in conjunction with a scheduled narcotic, it can mean they are selling the narcotic,” said the officer.
While the search was ongoing, Bailey’s cell phone “was receiving multiple calls and text messages from different individuals,” according to the report.
“Based on (this) information, I believe I interrupted a transaction of currency for narcotics between Bailey and one of the suspects,” said the officer.
The officer later counted 82 bags in the bundles of heroin found during the search.
Bailey is free on a $2,500 non-surety bond, and scheduled to appear in Superior Court in Torrington Oct. 16., police said.
A Toyota Camry was also seized as a result of the arrest, according to the report.
