NORWICH, Conn. (AP) — A man and woman from Uncasville have been charged with using the popular Internet site Craigslist to sell heroin.
Police tell the Norwich Bulletin they received an anonymous tip that led them to contact 18-year-old Alexis Chidester online and set up a drug deal.
They say she and 28-year-old Thomas Birkbeck arrived Thursday at the predetermined location in Norwichtown with several hundred dollars’ worth of prepackaged heroin.
Both were charged with possession with heroin and possession with intent to sell. They were released on bonds of $25,000 and are due in court on July 24.
Neither Birkbeck nor Chidester has a listed phone number and could not be reached for comment Friday morning.
