Norwich — City police say that information left on the department’s anonymous tip line led to the arrests of two men on drug charges Thursday.
According to a press release, the department’s detective division received tips from several sources, including the tip line, that heroin was being sold out of a home at 30 Spaulding St.
After surveillance at that address, police arrested Mikal Muhammad, 46, of 30 Spaulding St., and Jordan Nicholas, 19, of 111 River Ave., and charged them each with conspiracy to sale heroin and possession of heroin with intent to sell.
Muhammad also was charged with first-degree failure to appear in court on a different drug case involving heroin and prescription drugs.
Nicholas also was charged with possession of heroin and carrying a dangerous weapon — a pellet gun that looked like a semi-automatic weapon, police said.
Muhammad was held on a $175,000 bond, and was arraigned in Norwich Superior Court Friday.
Nicholas was released on a $25,000 bond and will be arraigned April 12 in Norwich Superior Court.
