A suspected heroin dealer was cornered at a hotel in Milford and captured after a brief foot chase.
Police said they arrested 29-year-old Anthony Parowski of Stratford.
They said he is suspected of selling heroin in Milford and surrounded towns.
On Thursday, Drug Enforcement Agency agents tried to get him in a hotel parking lot.
However, he fled on foot while throwing a large amount of heroin to the ground outside of the hotel.
With the help of their K9 Cedar, they recovered the evidence.
Police found 190 bags of packaged heroin and a large bag containing more than 70 grams.
They said it was a street value of between $15,000 and $20,000.
A large amount of cash was also seized.
Parowski was charged with sale of narcotics and held on a $100,000 bond.
He faced a judge on Friday.
