Head Shop Owner Charged With Selling Drugs



    Clinical Trials at Hartford HealthCare
    Cops said a head shop was selling something to make the head a little woozy.

    A Storrs head shop owner had more than skeletons in the closet, police say. 

    Dana Dicola, 54, was charged on Thursday with selling marijuana and other controlled substances out of the Skeleton’s Closet Novelty Shop at 10 Dog Lane near the University of Connecticut Campus, according to a release by Mansfield police.

    Approximately 45 grams of marijuana, 65 units of a “controlled substance,” $335, as well as digital scales, packaging material and other items were seized through an investigation by the Statewide Narcotic Task Force and the Mansfield police.

    Charges against Dicola include two counts of possession of marijuana and two counts of possession of a controlled substance within 1,500 feet of a school, police said. The shop is located across the street from E.O. Smith High School.

    The Hartford Courantreports that the Enfield resident is being held at $225,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
