In the late 1990s Oakland Raiders draft choice Gennaro DiNapoli was just embarking on a career in the National Football League. 

Fast forward to now, and the Drug Enforcement Administration’s New Haven office searched his Newtown house on May 30 looking for oxycodone pills and prescription paper used to allegedly create fraudulent scripts after he was identified as a possible dealer in the area, the Danbury News Times reports based on a search warrant it obtained. 

According to the paper, DiNapoli is alleged to have twice sold to DEA undercover agents more than $6,000 worth of oxycodone tablets in April and May. DEA agents did seize five shotguns, two rifles and a handgun from the residence, the Times reports. 

DiNapoli, 39, has not been charged with a crime. He played six years in the NFL.
