Narcotics Arrest May 19, 2015

On May 19, 2015, Detectives from the Hartford Police Vice and Narcotics Unit received information that a Parole violator operating a blue, four door Lincoln with tinted windows was in possession of narcotics and a firearm. With information provided, Detectives were able to locate and positively identify the individual in the suspect vehicle as Miguel Diaz, 35, of Wethersfield, CT. Hartford Narcotic Detectives with the assistance of South Condition Officers and the State Police Narcotics Task Force (SNTF) attempted to stop the vehicle. The vehicle failed to stop for Detectives and a clear plastic bag was observed thrown out of the vehicle window before fleeing the area. The clear plastic bag was located and contained 309 bags of Heroin. Surveillance was established at a location on Hillside Avenue identified by Detectives as a "Hideout" for Diaz. Diaz and a second individual identified as Felix Hernandez, 39, of Hartford were located in the area and detained. Consent to search was obtained for that location where Detectives located a firearm, along with narcotics and packaging material. The evidence seized by Detectives through the surveillance and search is listed below:
