A Fairfield father of three young children has been accused of supplying large amounts of marijuana to drug dealers in Bridgeport, according to police in that city.
The Bridgeport Police Narcotics and Vice Unit used a battering ram Tuesday night to force their way into the home of Jason Harmony on Querida Street home in Fairfield, where they said they found more than a pound of marijuana along with materials to package the drug for sale.
They also said they found $10,000 in cash a few feet from where his three young children were sleeping.
Harmony, 28, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia in a factory situation and possession of more than four ounces of marijuana. He was later released after posting a $50,000 bond.
Bridgeport police said that, over the past few months, they had received complaints that Harmony was a drug dealer selling large quantities of marijuana to city drug dealers out of his home.
Last week, police said they received information that Harmony had driven to New York City where he had picked up a large amount of marijuana.
On Tuesday morning officers grabbed garbage bags from in front of Harmony's home. During a search of those bags police said they found numerous plastic bags marked with the names of brands of the drug as well as marijuana residue.
Shortly after 11 p.m., Bridgeport and Fairfield police officers forced their way into Harmony's home with a battering ram.
Inside the house, police said they found Harmony and his girlfriend in one bedroom and the couple's three children in another.
Police said they began searching the house and found several bags and plastic containers containing a pound and two ounces of marijuana. They said they also found a digital scale and small plastic bags along with the cash.
