Norwalk Heroin, Crack Dealer Goes To Federal Prison After DEA Wiretap Investigation
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - Michael J. Ferguson Special Agent-in-Charge of the DEA’s New England Division and Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that Anthony Scullark, also known as “A.J.” and “Ace,” 31, of Norwalk, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Victor A. Bolden in Bridgeport to 40 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for distributing heroin, and for violating the conditions of his supervised release from a prior federal conviction.
This matter stems from an investigation headed by the DEA’s Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force, Stamford Police Department, Norwalk Police Department and Connecticut State Police. The investigation included court-authorized wiretaps, controlled purchases of narcotics and physical surveillance.
According to court documents and statements made in court, in May 2016, Scullark was intercepted over a wiretap ordering 10 “sleeves” or “bricks” (1000 dosage units) of heroin from Kenneth Brickhouse, also known as “K.E.”
On October 4, 2016, Scullark was arrested after he conducted a drug transaction in the parking lot of a Norwalk business. A search of Scullark’s person, vehicle residence revealed approximately 65 bags of heroin, 19 small knotted bags of crack cocaine, $1,695 in cash, and eight cellphones. Scullark has been detained since his arrest.
On October 8, 2013, Scullark was sentenced in Bridgeport federal court to 21 months of imprisonment and three years of supervised release for conspiring to possess with intent to distribute, and to distribute crack cocaine. His term of supervised release began July 23, 2014.
On December 5, 2016, Scullark pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute heroin, and to violating the conditions of his supervise release.
Brickhouse pled guilty and, on March 9, 2017, Judge Bolden sentenced him to 10 years of imprisonment.
The DEA’s Bridgeport High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force includes members from the Bridgeport, Stamford, Stratford, Norwalk, Milford and Trumbull Police Departments, and the Connecticut State Police.
