Jimmy D. Glover, a full-time trooper of the Connecticut State Police, in 1970 was assigned to the Narcotics Division in an undercover capacity. On May 5 of 1970, while there was still daylight, Glover and Henry Alton Brown, an informant, went to an apartment building at 201 Westland, in Hartford, for the purpose of purchasing narcotics from a known narcotics dealer. After obtaining information about the respondent, Glover and Brown drove to headquarters where he described the seller to other narcotics dealers. Glover was given the information that the respondent was a colored man, approximately five feet eleven inches tall, dark complexion, black hair, and having high cheekbones, and of heavy build. Respondent was arrested on July 27 while visiting at the apartment on 201 Westland. Respondent was charged with possession and sale of heroin. At his trial, the photograph from which Glover had identified respondent was received in evidence without objection on the part of the defense. Glover also testified that, though he had not seen respondent in the eight months that had elapsed since the sale, “there was no doubt whatsoever” in the mind that the person shown on the photograph was respondent. Glover also made a positive in-court identification without objection.
