(Norwalk, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – Police in Norwalk are charging a man after they say he led them on a brief foot chase as they investigated drugs in a city home.
On Wednesday Norwalk officers, with the aid of the U.S. Marshals Service Violent Fugitive Task Force arrived at the home on Muffin Lane as part of an ongoing investigation.
It was as they approached the rear of the residences that they say 23-year-old Zachary Fisher bolted out a back door.
Fisher, they say, fled into a wooded area behind the residence wtih a duffel bag.
Inside that bag, officers say they found a pound of marijuana and over $14,000 in cash.
A subsequent check of the home netted ove a pound of additional marijuana, over five-and-a-half grams of cocaine, along with a prescription Lidocaine patch, marijuana grow lamps, a surveilance system and $1,300 in additional cash.
As it turns out, Fisher was not the person they’d been initially targeting.
He’s being held on a $15,000 bond.
