A tip to police led to the arrest of a Bronx man who was bringing a fresh supply of marijuana to a Stamford dealer Thursday night, police said.

Givonni Fiore, 27, of Mulford Avenue in the Bronx, was charged with possession of more than four ounces of marijuana, sale of a controlled substance and resisting arrest. He was released after posting $10,000 bond.

Capt. Richard Conklin said officers in the Narcotics and Organized Crime Unit became aware that a man was on his way from New York Thursday night to resupply a Stamford marijuana dealer.

After police set up surveillance on North Street, where the meeting was supposed to take place about 11:00 p.m. Thursday, they spotted a man driving the car they were seeking.

When the man, later identified as Fiore, got out of a gray Buick Century with New York plates and pulled a package from the trunk, police moved in.

After police identified themselves, Fiore put up a struggle before officers were able to take him into custody. When officers looked into the bag, they found 11 vacuum-sealed packages of high-grade marijuana weighing 13.5 ounces, Conklin said.

Fiore is scheduled to be arraigned at state Superior Court in Stamford on December 4, 2014.
