NEW CANAAN, Conn. – A New Canaan High School senior is facing a felony drug charge after being arrested by New Canaan Police in connection with the theft of an iPhone.

Police said the 17-year-old, whose name was not released because of his age, is charged with possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia and fifth-degree larceny. The boy is being charged as a youthful offender.

Police said they were contacted on Feb. 27 by a 17-year-old New Canaan High student, who reported that her iPhone had been taken on Feb. 23 after she left it with other belongings in a theater hallway.

Police looked at surveillance video and were able to identify a suspect. Police went to the suspect’s home on Feb. 29 with search and arrest warrants. The $500 iPhone, used syringes with heroin residue, bottles with marijuana residue, a digital scale and plastic baggies usually used to store marijuana were found during the search, police said.
