New Haven Police Lieutenant Faces Charges in Marijuana Case

New Haven Police Lieutenant Faces Charges in Marijuana Case

New Haven police lieutenant was arrested yesterday after officers executing a search warrant found a pound and a half of marijuana in the apartment she shared with her boyfriend, the authorities said.

The officer, Sonia Atkinson, lived in a second-floor apartment on Mead Street with her boyfriend, Hector Ruiz, said Lt. Patrick Redding, the officer in charge of internal affairs for the New Haven Police Department. Lieutenant Redding said that the authorities believe Mr. Ruiz was dealing drugs out of the apartment, but under state statutes Lieutenant Atkinson can also be charged.

Internal Affairs had found that marijuana was being sold out of Lieutenant Atkinson's apartment during the course of a three-month investigation, the authorities said. Officers said the marijuana confiscated has a street value of $10,000.

Lieutenant Atkinson, who was home at the time, was arrested and charged with six counts of possession, intent to sell and conspiracy to sell drugs. Mr. Ruiz was charged with the same counts. The police said Lieutenant Atkinson was released on bail, but the status of Mr. Ruiz, whose bail was set at $50,000, was unknown.

Lieutenant Atkinson was hired by the department in November 1991, but has been on paid medical leave since October. In a statement released yesterday, the Department of Internal Affairs said Police Chief Melvin H. Wearing had requested that Lieutenant Atkinson come to his office on Monday with union representation to discuss her future in the department.

Attempts to locate the families of Mr. Ruiz and Lieutenant Atkinson for comment were unsuccessful.
