Men Supplied Drugs to Teen Girls to Deal: Police

West Haven Police

West Haven police have arrested Joseph Gravelin and Leighton Morris, both of West Haven, who are accused of giving drugs to 15-year-old girls to sell.

West Haven police have arrested two men accused of supplying two 15-year-old girls with drugs to deal.

Police noticed the two girls approach drivers in the parking lots of Dunkin' Donuts and Sam’s Food Mart on Campbell Avenue around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, then quickly walk away, police said.

Officers were there to conduct a drug investigation after receiving several tips and determined that the girls were selling narcotics.

Police detained the teens, who cooperated with police, and investigators set up a controlled purchase.

It was during that part of the investigation that police said they determined that two men had been supplying the drugs to the juveniles to sell.

Officers arrested Joseph Gravelin, 34, and Leighton Morris, 48, both of West Haven. 

When police searched Gravelin’s house, they found additional marijuana and packaging material and seized 107.2 grams of marijuana, police said.

Gravelin and Morris were both charged with several drug charges, as well as risk of injury to minor.  Both are due in court in Milford on September 3.

A juvenile was also charged.
