    Two Hartford residents, including an accused drug dealer, are facing charges following a heroin bust in Glastonbury on Tuesday.

    Members of the East Central Narcotics Task Force went undercover to conduct an undercover “buy-and-bust” operation outside a Dunkin Donuts in Glastonbury. They arrested Lee Roy Ferrer, an accused heroin dealer known as “Flaco,” and an accomplice, Moises Melendez.

    Both men are 22 years old and live in Hartford, according to police.

    Police seized 39 bags of heroin and a Mazda RX-7.

    Ferrer is charged with the possession and sale of heroin. Police said the task force is also applying for three additional arrest warrants charging Ferrer with the sale and possession of heroin and conspiracy to sell and possess heroin.

    Melendez was charged with conspiracy to possess and conspiracy to sell heroin.

    Ferrer’s bond was set at $75,000 and Melendez’s was set at $10,000.
