Two Westporters Indicted on Drug Charges

A federal grand jury has indicted two Westport men on drug charges following their arrest in an early morning raid earlier this month, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Friday.

Kevin J .O’Connor, U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, said a federal grand jury sitting in Bridgeport returned the indictments which had remained partially under seal pending the arrest Friday of four other men in Bridgeport.

Ronnie Navarro, 46, and Lawrence Gaynor, 45, of 132 Greens Farms Road, Westport, were indicted on charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana, and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. They were arrested March 2 in a raid carried out by federal, state, and local law enforcement agents. (See WestportNow March 2, 2005)

The indictment seeks forfeiture of Gaynor’s Greens Farms Road home, his car, and $22,000 in cash seized at the home. If convicted, Gaynor faces up to 10 years and fines up to $500,000, while Navarro faces penalties up to five years of imprisonment and fines up to $250,000, O’Connor said.
