Stamford couple arrested with child for pot sales.

|

A Stamford couple with a small child was charged with  selling marijuana at their Glenbrook home following a raid Friday afternoon.

George Moschos, 41, and Christie Calka, 26, of 116 Colonial Road, were charged with possession of less than four ounces of marijuana, sale of marijuana, operating a drug factory, risk of injury to a child, possession of an hallucinogen, conspiracy to sell marijuana, possession of a controlled substance and possession of narcotics.

Calka was released on a written promise to appear at court and Moschos was released after posting a $500 bond.

Capt. Richard Conklin said responding to neighborhood complaints about traffic and possible drug dealing, the department’s Narcotics and Organized Crime squad raided  Moschos and Calka’s apartment at 2:45 p.m. Friday. Inside, police found a little over an ounce of marijuana, digital scales, marijuana grinders, and empty bags once containing marijuana, Conklin said. Police also found Suboxone pills, which are used to treat addiction to opiates, Conklin said.

A man who pulled in front of the house while the raid was going on -apparently looking to buy some pot from the two- was charged with criminal attempt at possession of marijuana, Conklin said.

Conklin said Calka was freed on a promise to appear at court because there was no one to take care of her child if she was held on bond.

The two were given the risk of injury charge because the couple’s 14-month old daughter was in the apartment when police found the drugs.

The two are scheduled to be arraigned on the charges on Nov. 29.

    True, no one is perfect….but this is a long way from perfect. This is criminal behavior. Where do you draw the line of what is justified to get more income? Sale of marijuana? Sale of cocaine? Burglary? Robbery? Assault?

    This is a ten year record of arrests for possession and sale, and other crimes.

    And remember…the SPD responded to calls from neighbors complaining about suspected drug deals in their residential neighborhood. If I had a drug lab in my neighborhood I sure hope the SPD would act to stop it.

    I hate how you people judge a man you have never met before in your entire life. George is and always will be a stand up guy and an amazing father. Everyone knows that most people in our country are having a hard time money wise, you should not judge someone for making extra money where they can. As for the SPD I would think they should use there time more wisely, not putting their efforts and the city’s budget towards making a good man out to be some sort of monster. We all have done things we are not proud of but sometimes you need to do those things in order to be able to support the ones you love. How dare you sit there and pull up records I’m more than 1000 percent sure if we did the same to you some embarrassing and interesting things would be revealed also. No one is perfect.

    Wasn’t this the same Moschos recently paroled for a series of bank robberies in the area?

    Boy this just makes me sad in so many ways. that child will only see drugs, people stoned, and have no life and education. The cycle will just repeat, like hers. what if she was on drugs when the child was born?only 5 years ago she was charged with the same thing.

    What wonderful parents. And the State is letting them retain custody of their child?
