STRATFORD — An 18-year-old Stratford resident was arrested Wednesday after police executed a search warrant and seized marijuana and a stolen gun from his residence, authorities said.

Courtney Dyce, of South Avenue, was the subject of an investigation that focused on narcotics sales and firearms related crimes within Stratford.

Dyce was arrested as he was leaving his home, where detectives found several ounces of marijuana and packaging as well as a stolen .40-caliber handgun which was loaded with several rounds of ammunition, according to a police report.

Dyce, who is currently on probation for a previous firearms arrest in 2018, was charged with possession with intent to sell marijuana, possession with intent to sell near school, operating a drug factory, theft of a firearm, sixth-degree larceny and criminal possession of a firearm.

Dyce was held on a $500,000 bond and ordered to appear in court on June 27.

The case was investigated by the Stratford Narcotics Vice and Intel Unit in coordination with the Bridgeport Police Task Force.
