NORWALK, Conn. -- A Norwalk man was arrested Wednesday after police accused him of selling heroin to an undercover police officer.

Omar Reid, 20, was taken into custody by the Norwalk Police Special Services Division and the Darien Police Department. The arrests followed a lengthy investigation into heroin sales in Norwalk and along the Route 1 corridor in Darien, Norwalk police said.

Police said Reid is a self-proclaimed member of the "Rollin 30" Harlem Crip gang, and was accused of selling a large quantity of heroin in both towns.

During the investigation, Reid sold heroin to undercover officers at various locations in Norwalk, according to police reports. He was arrested Wednesday while attempting another transaction in the parking lot of 201 Liberty Square in Norwalk. Police said he had a bundle of heroin on him, which is commonly ten folds of packaged heroin. Officers executed a search warrant at Reid's home, where they found two more bundles of heroin in his bedroom, according to police reports.

Reid was held on five counts of possession and sale of narcotics. All of these cases occurred within 1,500 feet of a day-care center, so he was also charged with that count. He was also charged with the possession of the narcotics in his home, which is within 1,500 feet of a school. Bond was set at $450,000, and he will appear in court on April 17.

Are you kidding me "jlevin"? He doesn't deserve to "have his life destroyed"? News flash for you. HEROIN DESTROYS LIVES. He may be young and stupid but that doesn't excuse him selling a DEADLY and addictive drug in our neighborhoods!!! Big time dealers start small!!! Screw this kid, he brought it on himself! He is an adult! Cannot believe what I read on here, honest to God. I am losing hope in humanity and its the "adults" that disgust me.

I can't believe you idiots are making excuses for this dope dealing thug!
I, for one, have no pity on this thug! I hope they throw the book at this insect!
He DESERVES it and then some!!

Jackie, i think you are living in the wrong century. Why send a person to prison for an extended period for a non-violent crime? Prison can be a harsh environment for a young person, and for many it becomes a training ground for a life of crime. And young people do lots of stupid stuff -- sadly, for many it's part of being young. Why not try to save a life rather than waste a life?

You're right, mountjoy. This is a 20-year-old kid caught with 10 $10 "bags" -- $100 worth of dope, plus another $200 worth of dope at his home. This is a small time dealer, obviously. That's all that comes at the conclusion of a "lengthy investigation"? And this kid likely not a violent criminal. It's likely that this kid needs to get straightened out, not have his life ruined at age 20 as an unemployable convicted felon. Tragic.

The problem is with an epidemic of undercover officers obviously hooked on drugs of all types. One keeps reading how undercover officers are buying every illegal drug available. We have to stop this rampant drug addiction among undercover officers!
Perhaps a 12 step program or a policy of undercover officers just "saying no" to drugs.

If they can hit this pig with "selling in the sunshine" and it adds more time -- THANK YOU!!

I am not defending anybody who sells drugs but this "Within 1500 feet of a school" charge is nonsense.It has no real meaning other than to boost the charges as these guys are never selling to school children.Where in town are you not "Within 1500 feet of a school?"
It only serves to increase bail and give the prosecutor a bit more leverage which he doesn't need in a case like this.When was the last time you heard of adults selling drugs to school children?
