The Danbury Police Department's Community Conditions Unit was working the North Street Shopping Center upon receiving complaints about drug sales in the area. Police witnessed a man driving into the parking lot in a van and park at about 2 a.m. Saturday. Police said he made a phone call, and then drove toward a car parked in the lot.
Police said they saw the man in the van throw something into the car, and then receive what they thought to be cash in return. They followed the van and stopped it with the help of patrol officers. The van was driven by Debrvion Cook, 19, South Cove Road, Danbury. Police said he had five small plastic bags with a green leafy substance that later tested positive for marijuana. Cook was charged with possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to sell. He was held on a $5,000 bond.
