A home on Bibbins Avenue in Fairfield was raided this week after police has received several tips that there was drug activity taking place inside. The raid resulted in two teenagers facing serious charges and plenty of confiscated evidence.
Eighteen year olds Sotirios Georgakopoulos Jr. and Pema Tenzin are both facing charges for operating a drug house. Both are currently being held on $250,000 bond, according to the Connecticut Post.
The bust was quite an ordeal, involving 15 officers and 2 K9s. The police forced entry through the front door and saw 8 people scurry to back bedrooms. The officers again had to use force to break into the bedrooms where they found Tenzin allegedly throwing pills out of the window.
All other occupants of the home were found to be guests and only the two 18 year olds have been charged.
Among the evidence seized in the raid was: methamphetamine pills believed to be ecstasy, 1 pound of marijuana, a canister of nitrous oxide, drug packaging material, paraphernalia, and $700 in cash.
The two young men face charges of possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of marijuana more than 4 ounces, possession of marijuana within 1,500 feet of a school, possession of methamphetamine, possession with intent to sell methamphetamine, possession with intent to sell meth within 1,500 feet of a school, illegal possession of a restricted substance, operating a drug factory, and impairing the morals of a minor, as the 15 year old brother of Georgakopoulos was in the home at the time.
With a lengthy list of charges like these, these young adults are looking at spending the next several years behind bars.
Facing drug charges of any kind is no walk in the park, particularly if they are as serious as these. Depending on your criminal history and the details of your case, however, sometimes a deal can be struck with the prosecution. For fairly minor charges like possession of marijuana, there are often a few options available.
