Danbury Police Arrest Three Residents for Several Drug Offenses

On Friday, March 26, 2021, Christopher West was arrested for a variety of drug offenses incident to the execution of search and seizure warrants related to an investigation regarding illegal drug sales. The investigation began weeks earlier, after receiving citizen complaints that he was selling illicit drugs from throughout the city.
 
During the investigation, investigators were able to corroborate the complaints through several different investigative techniques, which lead to the issuance of search and seizure warrants for his person, car, residence and phone.
 
During the afternoon hours of March 26, 2021, investigators with the Danbury Police Special Investigations Division, assisted by other Danbury Police Department investigator and the Community Conditions Unit, established surveillance of West, following him from his residence to a nearby street where he was apprehended in the process of making an illicit drug sale to Medesia Danzy.
 
After seizing both West and Danzy, investigators proceeded to the residence of Christopher West to secure the premises for the purpose of executing a court-authorized search and seizure warrant. In the process of executing the warrant, investigators encountered Tanisha West, the wife of Christopher, and her 5-year-old daughter. In spite of the request for compliance by the investigators’, Tanisha West completely disregarded their authority and violently resisted, kicking one of the investigators and attempting to bite another.
 
Based on the findings of the search and seizure warrants, observations of the investigators and that a five-year-old is residing in the residence and present when the warrant for the residence was executed, Christopher West, Tanisha West and Medisia Danzy were all placed under arrest and transported to the Danbury Police Department. Danzy was later released for a written promise to appear in court at a later date and time and both Christopher and Tanisha West were released on bond pending a future court date.
