An accused crack cocaine dealer is facing charges after leading police on a car chase when officers intercepted him outside a Glastonbury apartment complex, authorities said.
Police targeted who they believed to be a known crack cocaine dealer in the parking lot of the Salem Court Apartment Complex on Griswold Street in Glastonbury.
When they approached the accused dealer, who was known only by “Show,” he drove off, leading police on a chase, police said.
The man was tracked down and identified as 23-year-old Javon Loney, who is homeless and living in Bloomfield, according to police.
Loney was taken into custody Dec. 10 and charged with possession of narcotics, sale of narcotics, reckless endangerment and engaging police in pursuit, among other offenses.
He was also served two other arrest warrants stemming from other incidents and was charged with sale and possession of crack cocaine.
He was held on a $175,000 bond.
Police also arrested 24-year-old Ivori Harrison, of Manchester, who owned the Nissan Maxima that Loney was driving at the time of the chase. She was charged with interfering with police. Her bond was set at $2,500.
Authorities confiscated the car and four grams of crack cocaine.
