Police: Father, son tried to sell drugs in Stamford
Stamford police say a father and son were arrested for trying to sell drugs in the city.
Fifty 30 mg oxycodone pills and four bags of cocaine were found Thursday, police say, worth a total of about $2,000.
Jose Peguero, a 57-year-old from the Bronx, allegedly came to Stamford several times to deal drugs. His 31-year-old son, Hassan Peguero, was released on a promise to appear in court.
Police say the men were spotted at a Shell gas station on West Avenue, right off I-95.
A number of overdoses in the city are caused by prescription painkillers, police add.
