BLOOMFIELD, Conn. -- Police investigating an off-campus home invasion in Bloomfield, Conn., have charged one of the victims with selling narcotics.

Andrew R. Damo, 20, a student at the University of Hartford, faces multiple counts of counts of possession of narcotics with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia, The Hartford Courant reported Wednesday.

Two of Damo's housemates, students Juan Medina and Gideon Moskowitz, have been charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bloomfield police Capt. Jeffrey L. Blatter says officers found cocaine, Vicodin, oxycodone and more than $3,000 cash while conducting a follow-up investigation of the home invasion.

Damo is from Whitestone, N.Y.; Medina, 19, is from Bayside, N.Y.; and Moskowitz, 21, is from Bloomfield.

University of Hartford President Walter Harrison has expressed disappointment in the students' arrests and says if convicted all three could face student misconduct charges.
