Ex-pastor among five charged in federal drug probe

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — A former Roman Catholic pastor is among five people who have been indicted by a federal grand jury in an alleged drug operation involving shipments of methamphetamine to ­Connecticut from California.

Federal prosecutors said Monsignor Kevin Wallin, 61, former pastor at St. Augustine’s Parish in Bridgeport, received the shipments and sold methamphetamine to an undercover officer six times since last September. Prosecutors say investigators also gathered evidence from court-authorized wiretaps.
