Four people, including a Westport man, were arrested early Thursday morning after police raided a Norwalk home and seized $22,000 in cash and a large amount of steroids and amphetamines.
Clinton Chizinski, 27, of East Rocks Road, Norwalk, was arraigned at Superior Court in 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.
A little later, the Westport man -- John Musor, 25, of Quarter Mile Road -- was picked up because police said he planned to sell Chizinski pain killers.
Musor 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.
After getting into the home, they determined that Chizinski had a large amount of steroids in pill and injectable form, Perez said. Perez said there was so much 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, 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 was revenue 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.
When the two came to Norwalk to pick up the pot, police said they were arrested. Kara Pohlschroeder, 27, of West Meadow Street, Wilton, and Nathaniel Tracy, 23, of Oak Crest Street, Darien, both were charged with criminal attempt at trying to purchase marijuana.
Chizinski 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.
