Westport Woman Arrested in Drug Ring that Made House Calls

A Westport woman who was an alleged drug customer was among those arrested in a greater Bridgeport cocaine trafficking ring that specialized in making home deliveries in Westport and other communities, according to federal authorities.

An affidavit filed by the FBI in Bridgeport said the agency used court-ordered wiretaps to uncover the operation over four months.

Seven alleged dealers were arrested Tuesday along with seven identified as customers.—among them Debora Chapin, 41, of 185 Wilton Road, Westport.

She was among those charged with using a telephone to facilitate a narcotics felony. She faces up to four years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Authorities said the 10 people arrested in the ring were being held without bond.

Board of Ed chair Sandra Urist earlier told the board that if all money were not restored, the school system would be hurt.
