Press Release from Av Harris, firstname.lastname@example.org
“This joint action by the Connecticut State Police and our officers sends a strong message to anyone running illegal drug sales and trafficking guns in Bridgeport: we are coming for you,” said Bridgeport Police Chief AJ Perez. “We have had several successful operations with our state partners and we are keeping the pressure on the illicit drug and gun trade. We continue to get good cooperation from the community, which results in good information that can lead to getting rid of these bad actors and the harm they bring our neighborhoods. Through this action we have disrupted more sales of addictive prescription drugs, and taken away more guns that could be used to hurt people in Bridgeport. We clearly have more work to do, and we intend to do it.”
Ms. Almourtada was released shortly after her arrest on a $100,000 non-surety bond. She is scheduled to appear for arraignment at Bridgeport Superior Court on July 27, 2016. DCF was contacted and a referral was made for one child in her custody under the Drug Endangered Children (DEC) Program.
