WATERVILLE — The last of three defendants to face trial in a Bridgeport drug raid is now accused of attempting to intimidate a key witness in his case.

Douglas County prosecutors said Monday they expect to charge Walter Gonzalez Gomez, 21, with witness tampering. The confidential informant who turned over evidence to Douglas County sheriff’s deputies reported that Gonzalez made threats April 15, saying “a rat’s life is not good if they are proved to be a snitch and most of them end up dead.”
