Cops had to break out all the windows of a car in order to drag an alleged drug dealer out of the vehicle in order to arrest him, Stamford Police said.

The incident took place around 2 p.m. Friday, July 13 at 218 Seaton Road when Stamford Police received word that Andrae Morgan "Drey," 27, of New Britain, would be making a cocaine drop, said Capt. Richard Conklin.

Officers "set-up" on the location and when Drey arrived in a blue Honda Accord, officers went to block in his car, Conklin said.

Drey then rammed one of the undercover cars, causing minor damage, and then refused to get out of his vehicle, fighting officers, he added.

Agents finally had to break all of the windows of the Honda in order to drag Drey out of the vehicle, Conklin said.

Once outside of the vehicle, officers found one bag of cocaine containing 15.5 grams and another bag of cocaine in Drey's pants containing 15.2 grams, and $730 in cash was seized, Conklin said.

He was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to sell. He is being held on a $30,000 bond. Drey also has prior convictions Conklin added.
