SHELTON, Conn. — A Shelton man was arrested Thursday on charges of providing an 18-year-old woman with enough drugs and alcohol to cause her to pass out on more than one occasion in his home, police said.

Steven Weitzman, 53, was charged with illegal dispensing of a legend drug, possession of a controlled substance, sale of a controlled substance, procuring alcohol to a minor and permitting a minor to possess alcohol in a dwelling, police said.

He was released on $5,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in Derby Superior Court on May 12, police said.

The arrest stemmed from a complaint from the victim’s father, police said. Detectives investigated and found Weitzman was picking up the young woman and taking her back to his home, police said.
