Naugatuck Police Arrest 3 In Drug Deal Turned Robbery and Assault

Police say a Naugatuck man was dragged by the getaway car.

On Saturday night Naugatuck police responded to Coen Street on a report of an assault, police said in a press release. 

According to police, Ryan Sears, 21, of Coen Street, allegedly agreed to sell marijuana to Jonathan Sego, 20, of Rubber Avenue. John Burns III, 24, of Spring Street, allegedly drove Sego to meet with Sears to sell them marijuana, police said. 

When Sears gave Sego the marijuana, Sego instructed Burns to drive away, police said. When they drove away, Sears was dragged by the vehicle and sustained injuries to his hands and feet, police said. 

Police later found Sego and Burns later in Naugatuck. Sego and Burns were each charged with third-degree robbery, conspiracy to commit third-degree robbery, second-degree reckless endangerment, third-degree assault and possession of a controlled substance. 

Sears was charged with illegal possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.

Does anyone read this stuff before printing it?? What a disaster. Good luck trying to understand the beginning of this article. OK...so Sears agrees to sell weed to Sego. Burns offers to drive Sego to meet Sears (or is it Spears) to sell THEM weed? Huh? What? Who is them? Who is selling weed to who? I thought Sears/Spears was selling it?? And what self-respecting drug dealer would hand over the product before getting the moolah?? What the hell is this world coming to? What the hell has happened to Patch?? Sears? Spears? Convoluted reporting. No proofreaders around anywhere?? What a complete mess. Police later found Sego and Burns later in Naugatuck. Later twice in same sentence?? Who writes this crap? Third graders? God help us....

For someone who complains as much as you do about this website, you sure do seem to spend an enormous amount of time here. If a site got me that upset I would not visit it.

Say what you want, Jim. For Patch to be taken seriously they have to do better than that. Nobody can read that and think that it's OK. It's brutal. Just because I post often doesn't mean I have to settle for amateurs who can't even string together two sentences that are readable.

Good grief, not once did it say SPEARS.
