A pedestrian in West Norwalk Thursday morning came across a bag full of narcotics worth thousands of dollars, police said.
Police spokeswoman Sgt. Lisa Cotto said the reporting party located the bag in a wooded area adjacent to West Cedar Street.
Officers dispatched to the scene reported the bag was in a ditch next to a recently uprooted tree.
Officer Mark Suda of the Special Services Division came out to recover the bag and transport it to headquarters.
Suda said there were several plastic bags within the larger bag, and broke down their tested contents as 2 bags of crack cocaine, 3 bags of marijuana and 9 bags of heroin. After weighing the contents, he estimated the street value of the drugs to be $16,000.
The officers’ reports did not indicate if it appeared the larger bag was accidentally lost or was left at the location to be collected at a later time.
