BRISTOL - A city man was arrested by the local narcotics unit Thursday evening after he was found with 80 bags of suspected heroin or Fentanyl and crack cocaine.

Police said the drugs found on Christopher Deutsch, 32, of 152 Greene St., were all packaged for sale.

According to police, he was wanted in connection with two warrants charging him with two counts of sale of narcotics and one count of sale of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a school.

Upon searching Deutsch, when he was arrested around 6:26 p.m., detectives from the Narcotics Enforcement Team found 80 bags of suspected heroin or Fentanyl and crack cocaine. Drugs that appear to be heroin or Fentanyl are often not tested by police in the field because of the dangers Fentanyl can present if it were to accidentally come into contact with skin or become airborne.

The drugs were seized and could be tested in a lab.

After police located the drugs, Deutsch was additionally charged with one count each of possession of narcotics with intent to sell and possession of narcotics. He was held by police on $250,000 bond, pending arraignment in New Britain Superior Court.

No further information has been released.
