Complaints from people led to the arrest of a suspected drug dealer in Danbury Wednesday.

Police said they arrested Ivan Rojas-Dominguez after detectives and the FBI executed a search and seizure warrant at his Abbott Avenue home.

They said they received reports about Rojas-Dominguez selling illegal drugs in the city.

Police said they conducted surveillance of the suspect and observed him engaging in activities consistent with drug trafficking.

They said on Wednesday just before 11:30 p.m., he was spotted conducting a drug transaction in a business parking lot on Mill Plain Road.

A search of his vehicle revealed that he was in possession of a substantial amount of money and drugs.

Police took him into custody and headed to his home.

They said they found items related to drug trafficking there.

They seized several ounces of cocaine, drug paraphernalia and more than $30,000 in cash.

Other people in the home were not arrested because the drug-related materials appeared to he limited to Rojas-Dominguez's bedroom, police said.

Rojas-Dominguez was charged with possession of narcotics, possession with intent to sell, criminal attempt at selling narcotics, possession within 1,500 feet of a school, possession with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

His bond was set at $250,000.
