Stratford Man Charged with Distributing Heroin Involved in Woman’s Overdose

MAY 17 (NEW HAVEN, Conn.) –Michael J. Ferguson Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration for New England and Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Raymond J. Gordon, also known as “X-RAY,” 30, of Stratford, was arrested today on a federal criminal complaint charging him with distributing heroin. 

After his arrest, Gordon appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sarah A. L. Merriam in New Haven and was ordered detained.

As alleged in court documents, on December 10, 2016, Stratford Police and emergency medical personnel responded to a Stratford residence after receiving a report of an unresponsive 22-year-old female.  The female, who was in her bedroom, was pronounced deceased.  Responding officers collected wax folds containing suspected heroin, a hypodermic needle and other drug paraphernalia from the bedroom.  Investigators also seized the victim’s cellphone.  The investigation revealed that the victim purchased heroin from Gordon shortly before she died.

The complaint charges Gordon with possession with intent to distribute, and distribution of, heroin, an offense that carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years.

This matter is being investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force and the Stratford Police Department.  The task force includes personnel from the Norwalk, Stamford, Stratford, Milford and Bridgeport Police Departments, and the Connecticut State Police.
