An East Hartford convenience store owner faces charges of selling the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra to undercover agents on two occasions, according to an affidavit obtained from Manchester Superior Court.

The owner, Nagi Nasher, 48, of New Britain, was charged on September 11 with two counts of illegally selling prescription drugs, a misdemeanor. He was released on a promise to appear and is due to return to court on October 25.

The affidavit in support of Nasher’s arrest provides the following details: In April, police opened an investigation into suspected drug activity taking place at the Save More Food Mart at 1260 Main Street in East Hartford.

Police had received complaints of criminal activity occurring in the block where the store is located. In addition, the police guarding the area noticed that many people entering and exiting the store appeared to have bought nothing. Police believed that this may have been because customers were hiding what they were buying.

In order to find out what kind of activity was going on in the store, the police gave a confidential informant $ 10 and watched the informant enter the store.

The informant returned with a packet of four Viagra pills. Selling the drug without a prescription or permission to write a prescription is a crime.

The informant told police he bought the drugs from a man behind the registry, who police later identified as Nasher.

Police returned to the store on April 11 in plain clothes and in an unmarked police vehicle, and demanded Viagra for $ 10, as the confidential informant had done.

Nasher leaned down, grabbed the packet of pills from under the counter, and handed it to the undercover agent.

An undercover agent returned to the store on May 1 and was again sold Viagra by Nasher.
