Crack in Crack – Danbury Police Say Man Had Large Pile of Drugs in His Underwear
36 year-old Lenny Cubilette was arrested in Danbury on Wednesday (5/25/22) and charged with multiple drug offenses.
A press release from the Danbury PD states that Cubilette "was known to detectives" as they have arrested him in the past for narcotics violations. Cubilette was already under surveillance as part of an existing investigation, when officers say they saw him engage in what they believed to be a drug deal.
Danbury Police Sergeant John Krupinsky tells the press that Cubilette was seen meeting with a person, getting into their automobile and then exiting the vehicle a short time after. Officers say Cubilette's actions "were consistent with drug sales."
After the alleged drug transaction, Cubilette drove his vehicle to a parking lot on Federal Road, parked the car, and officers moved in to investigate further. The police blocked Cubilette in, he reportedly attempted to flee, and he struck a police vehicle in the process.

Cubilette was allegedly in possession of 66 grams of cocaine (powder/crack form). DPD seized Cubielette's vehicle (2012 Honda Accord) and $977.

- Possession of a controlled substance 2 counts
