New Milford man charged in drug bust

NEW MILFORD — A 20-year-old New Milford man faces drug possession charges after police responded to a complaint about a suspicious vehicle parked in the Danvers Road area early Saturday.

John Bernardi, of Long Mountain Road, was charged with transportation of narcotics with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia after police discovered what they called a “substantial amount of marijuana and cash” in the vehicle about 2 a.m.

Police said they were called because the vehicle had been parked in the area for several hours with several people in it.

Bernardi was released on $500 bond for a court appearance in Bantam on Dec. 9.
