STAMFORD — Three New Haven residents were arrested in Stamford Thursday night in connection with an attempted drug deal, police said.

Stamford police’s Narcotics and Organized Crime received information that the trio would be arriving in Stamford in a black car and parking in a lot on Perry Street at around 7:30 p.m.

When the car arrived, officers blocked it in and approached the occupants.

A person in the backseat, later identified as Dyshawn Davis, 26, allegedly reached for his waistband and took out 10 bundles or 100 folds of heroin that he dropped near his feet. The heroin was stamped with the words “best buy,” police said.

Police Capt. Richard Conklin said each bag is worth roughly $20, meaning police seized about $2,000 in heroin from the car.

“This illustrates the ongoing demand for opioids,” Conklin said.

Officers also seized about $100 worth of marijuana and $231 in cash, he said.

Davis was charged with possession and sale of illegal drugs and possessing less than four ounces of marijuana.

Shemar Dawson, 24, was also arrested. Police discovered that he had a warrant out of Clinton for fifth-degree larceny, and he was taken to the Clinton Police Department to be processed.

The third person, Jazmine Hinds, was charged with violation of a protective order that Dawson had against her.
