Norwich — For the second time in two years, police have charged a 56-year-old city man with selling drugs from his Wawecus Hill Road home.

Dennis Foster, of 94 Wawecus Hill Road, Apt. A, was charged Wednesday on a warrant with two counts of sale of cocaine. He additionally was charged with possession of crack cocaine/cocaine, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, operating a drug factory and two counts of risk of injury to a minor.

According to police, officers on Wednesday afternoon pulled Foster’s vehicle over near his home and arrested him without incident.

Around the same time, city officers worked with the Groton Town Police Department and New London-based FBI agents to execute a search warrant at Foster’s home.

Police said officers found a quarter-ounce of cocaine/crack cocaine, $3,500 cash, narcotics packaging materials, cutting agents, two cellphones and a scale inside the residence. According to police, two of Foster’s children also were inside at the time, so the state Department of Children and Families responded to assist.

Held on a total of $300,000 in bonds, Foster was arraigned in Norwich Superior Court on Thursday.

The charges come as Foster’s 2015 case — he was charged with possession of drugs with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia and operating a drug factory in August that year — is set to head to trial.

According to police, he was released on a $150,000 bond in that case. The trial is scheduled to begin Dec. 13.
