Police report: Man charged in drug bust

Shelter Island Police have arrested a Brooklyn man and charged him with possession and intent to sell heroin, cocaine and fentanyl.

Police said Thomas B. Roux, 38, was taken into custody on Tuesday, May 31, at 11:14 a.m. and charged with three counts of criminal possession and intent to sell the controlled substances.

Detective Sergeant Jack Thilberg reported that Mr. Roux was arrested after “an investigation regarding a complaint of a larceny in progress.”

The suspect was held overnight at police headquarters and went before a judge in Shelter Island Justice Court the following morning.

He was released on his own recognizance with a monitoring device attached to his ankle and directed to return at a future date. It was further learned, Sgt. Thilberg told the Reporter, that Mr. Roux allegedly disabled the device. He’s now “pending indictment” on several charges, Sgt. Thilberg added.
