Third Greenwich Man Arrested in Connection with Harris Case

Christopher A. Lundell on Friday turned himself in to police on a warrant charging him with possession of narcotics, conspiracy to possess narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia in connection with the Christopher Harris overdose case.

A third man has turned himself into police on drug charges in connection with the overdose case.

According to a report in the Greenwich Time, Christopher A. Lundell, 20, of 5 Wellington Place, on Friday turned himself in on a non-extradictable warrant. He is charged with possession of narcotics, conspiracy to possess narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. Lundell recently returned to Greenwich from California, according to the report, citing statements made by police.

Lundell is the third Greenwich man to be arrested in connection with the overdose incident, which occurred in January 2011. Last August police arrested Greenwich residents and via warrants on similar drug charges. The three were reportedly with Harris at his home on the night died.

Ramirez has reportedly agreed to serve eight years in prison, suspended after two years, and three years of probation in a plea deal with state prosecutors. He is already incarcerated for violating probation and is scheduled for formal sentencing on June 5, according to an earlier report in the Greenwich Time.

Meanwhile Nelson, 19, of Greenwich, who faces similar drug charges, has reportedly pleaded not guilty and awaits trial.

Harris was found unresponsive in his home on Jan. 8, 2011. He was transported to Stamford Hospital, where he later died. Although he reportedly had an underlying medical condition, police said “intoxicants” likely played a role in his death.
