    A 20-year-old man living in a sober house in New London was arrested near the house and police say they found 50 bags of fentanyl in his possession.

    Thomas Gunning Jr., a resident of the sober house at 130 Montauk Ave., was arrested near Montauk and Willetts avenues at 12:28 p.m. Monday by officers assigned to a quality-of-life patrol — an initiative meant to address drug activity in the area, according to New London police.

    Gunning was found in possession of 50 glassine bags of fentanyl, a powerful synthetic opioid drug, weighing about 9.5 grams, a cellphone and $570 in cash, police say. He was charged with possession of narcotics and possession of narcotics with intent to sell.
