A 73-year-old man, already on probation for selling drugs, was charged again Wednesday afternoon with selling his own prescription drugs to others.
Peter A. Mozeleski, of Marlborough Terrace, was stopped after he failed to stop at a stop sign at Old Stratfield Road and Pope Street, police said. His car, which had been impounded previously by police, had no license plate, and the registration expired Feb. 17, according to the report.
Mozeleski told police he had just come from picking up a prescription for alprazolam, a drug sold under the brand names Xanax and Niravam, according to the report. He allegedly admitted he was going to a friend's house to sell the pills, which are used to treat anxiety. The friend lives near a pre-school center and also admitted to officers that he was planning to buy the drugs from Mozeleski, police said.
Mozeleski was charged with sale of a controlled substance, and sale of a controlled substance within 1,500 feet of a school. Bond was set at $25,000 and he is scheduled to appear March 6 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
Judicial records show that Mozeleski was sentenced last November to five years probation on charges of sale of a controlled substance and sale of a hallucinogen that stemmed from an arrest on Jan. 31, 2013.
