Man accused of selling cocaine to strippers is arrested

Police say they arrested two Connecticut men on cocaine charges after an informant told them one of them was selling drugs to strippers.

The Day reports that the men, both of Waterford, were arrested Feb. 2 by Groton town police and released on bond. The arrests were announced Monday.

Police say they conducted surveillance after an informant told them one of the men was supplying cocaine to exotic dancers at a Groton strip club. Authorities say they searched the men's vehicle and found about 5 grams (0.18 ounces) of cocaine and more than $7,000 in cash.

Police say both men denied selling cocaine. Charges were later dismissed.
