Stamford police make two arrests, seize an ounce of cocaine and two guns

STAMFORD — Officers in the Narcotics and Organized Crime squad seized an ounce of cocaine while arresting two Stamford residents over the weekend on drug charges, police said.

The officers had heard that there would be a large cocaine delivery in the area of Waterbury Avenue in The Cove, Capt. Richard Conklin said.

The officers watched the area and when a car pulled up, they approached, he said. A woman later identified as Shameka Frederick, 30, quickly got out of the vehicle and allegedly dropped a bag containing 29 grams of cocaine from her lap onto the ground, police said.

A man later identified as Mark Borsey, 56, was driving, Conklin said. The two told police that they had just gone to pick up the illicit drugs, Conklin said.

Borsey and Frederick were each charged with possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell and conspiracy to possess narcotics.

Police also seized a valid pistol permit and sent it to state police for revocation, Conklin said. And police also seized two semiautomatic pistols from the residence where Borsey and Frederick live, he said.

The two were released after signing promises to appear in court.
