Narcotics and Gun Arrest
On Wednesday April 13, 2022, the Norwalk Police Department Special Services Division, along with the Norwalk Police Department Emergency Services Unit, seized a large quantity of narcotics and a handgun from the Roodner Court Housing Complex.
Investigators from the Special Services Division had received numerous complaints from residents of the complex regarding continuous sales of illegal narcotics and the use of firearms in conjunction with the sales. After a lengthy investigation, search and seizure warrants were obtained for a residence, for a vehicle and for Donald Flamer.
The warrants were executed on April 13, which led to the recovery of narcotics: crack cocaine, powder cocaine, MDMA (Ecstasy), and heroin laced with Fentanyl, the amountsof which are undisclosed.

A handgun and money were discovered and seized: approximately $3,174 in U.S. Currency, a Glock 19 9mm handgun, and a box of 9mm ammunition. Narcotics paraphernalia were located and taken as evidence, including 900 plastic apple baggies, 4 digital scales, 5 razor blades with narcotic residue, and a blender with narcotic residue.
Two young children were exposed to the dangerous activity. This investigation is open and ongoing; additional charges are pending related to the weapon.
