Danbury police bust parking lot drug dealer

DANBURY — A 31-year-old Danbury man who police said met his drug customers in various parking lots around the city was arrested Friday afternoon along with two of his alleged customers.

Joseph Iebba, of Mill Plain Road, is being held on $100,000 bond pending an appearance Monday in state Superior Court on charges of narcotics possession, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, violation of a protective order and criminal possession of a firearm.

His two customers, Nicholas Henry, 21, and Anthony Henry, 20, both of Plumtrees Road, Bethel, were both charged with possession of narcotics.

Police said Iebba had been under investigation for several weeks, and they had obtained court warrants to search his vehicle and his residence. About 12:30 p.m. Friday, detectives from the Special Investigations Divsion and the Community Conditions Unit located Iebba at the Henry residence, and subsequent search found all three suspects in possession of varying amounts of heroin.

Police then executed a search warrant at Iebba’s home, where they discovered a firearm and ammunition. He had been barred from possessing a weapon because of a previous domestic arrest, police said.

The Henrys were released on promises to appear in court, police said.
