NORWALK -- Four people were arrested early Thursday morning after police raided a city home and seized $22,000 in cash and a large amounts of steroids and amphetamines.
Clinton Chizinski, 27, of 63 East Rocks Road, Norwalk, was arraigned at the Norwalk courthouse Friday on charges of illegal distribution of prescription drugs, illegal possession of prescription drugs, possession of less than four ounces of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance. After his arrest at 5:30 a.m. Thursday, Chizinski was held in lieu of $75,000 bond.
During the raid of Chizninski's home, police also found Darien and Wilton residents looking for marijuana and a Westport man trying to sell, police said.
After getting into the home, they determined that Chizinski had a tremendous amount of steroids in pill and injectable form, Perez said. Perez said Chizinski had so much of the stuff that it was difficult to count and number.
Perez said he was also found in possession of hundreds of syringes, just over an ounce of high grade marijuana and 410 Adderall pills, which is an amphetamine prescribed for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and narcolepsy.
At the home, police also seized $7,000 in cash and then went to a safety deposit box and seized another $14,990 in cash that police said are the ill-gotten gains from drug dealing, Blake said. Police took his 2004 German made car, because they said it was used to deal drugs, Perez said.
Later in the day Thursday, Perez said a Wilton woman and a Darien man called Chizinski's cell phone looking for marijuana.
After the two came to Norwalk to pick the pot up but were met by police instead, Kara Pohlschroeder, 27, of 71 West Meadow St., Wilton and Nathaniel Tracy, 23, of 11 Oak Crest St., Darien, were charged with criminal attempt at trying to purchase marijuana.
A little later a Westport man was picked up because he wanted to sell Chizinski some pain killers, Perez said.
When the man got to Norwalk, police searched him and found 14 narcotic pain killers.
John Musor, 25, of 2 Quarter Mile Road, Westport, was charged with illegal distribution of prescription drugs, possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a school and possession with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school. He was released after posting a $40,000 court appearance bond.
Chizninski made headlines in 2004 when, as a 20-year-old sophomore at Fairfield University, he was shot in the abdomen when he confronted a man at a Westport house party who announced that he had a gun.
