STAM­FORD — Po­lice say a city man un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the Nar­cotics and Or­ga­nized Crime squad was found with 250 folds of fen­tanyl.

Capt. Richard Con­klin said of­fi­cers in the squad heard that Ken­drick Pozo, 23, of West Main Street, was go­ing into New York City to buy drugs and bring them back to sell on the street.

Of­fi­cers watched as he left his home about 6 p.m. Thurs­day. Con­klin said of­fi­cers ap­proached him when he re­turned around 9 p.m.

Con­klin said Pozo ran away when of­fi­cers asked him to take his hands out of his pock­ets.

Con­klin said of­fi­cers quickly caught up with Pozo and an item fell out of his pocket as he was taken into cus­tody.

Con­klin said the 250 folds of fen­tanyl were stamped “9 1⁄2.”

“This is a very dan­ger­ous drug that has re­sulted in a num­ber of fa­tal over­doses in Stam­ford and around the area,” Con­klin said. “It was nice that we were able to take a lot of this lethal drug off the street.”

Pozo was charged with posses­sion of nar­cotics with in­tent to sell, in­ter­fer­ing with po­lice and posses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance.

Pozo was ar­raigned at the Stam­ford court­house and a judge or­dered him held on a $200,000 court ap­pear­ance bond.
