  • Shelton PD: Derby man arrested in fatal OD probe. More arrests expected

    SHELTON- A fatal drug overdose this summer in Shelton led to the arrest of a Derby man Monday.

    Police arrested Dion Sanders, 22, of Derby on charges of sale of narcotics, possession of narcotics and first-degree reckless endangerment. Sanders is being detained on $250,000 following his appearance Tuesday in Derby Superior Court.

    The arrest stemmed from the death of a 25-year old woman in Shelton following her use of drugs police believe she bought from Sanders earlier in the day.

    Sanders is no stranger to Derby police who have arrested him numerous times in the past three years.

    Once he became a person of interest in the fatal overdose Shelton and Derby police bgan a joint investigation. That evidence enabled them to convince a Superior Court judge to sign off on a search and seizure warrant for his Derby home. The evidence seized is expected to result in additional arrests, police said..

    He was convicted in Derby Superior Court for a Nov. 21, 2016 assault in which he received a year sentence suspended to two years probation on Sept. 25, 2017. He also received an unconditional discharge on Oct. 27, 2017 for interferring with a police officer.

    Derby police have since arrested him on numerous charges including drug possession, narcotics sales, engaging officers in pursuit theft of a firearm and more. He now has five separate cases pending in Derby Superior Court.
