On 12/15/2016 at approximately 6:00 pm members of the Troop-D Quality of Life Task Force, Troopers assigned to the Killingly Resident Troopers Office and the Troop D Danielson barracks executed two narcotics related search and seizure warrants at #123 Broad Street, Apartment “E”, in Killingly, CT. The search warrants were obtained after an investigation revealed that John Goyette was processing and selling “crack” cocaine and powdered cocaine from his residence. Investigators learned that the accused was out of the residence with his girlfriend and at that time entry was made into the unoccupied residence and the apartment was secured. A systematic search by investigators located approximately 30.2 grams of “crack” and powdered cocaine pre-packaged for sale, four handguns, one double barreled shotgun, a digital scale, a concealment container, packaging equipment, and approximately $550.00 dollars in US Currency. While Troopers were searching the residence, Goyette arrived back home and was arrested without incident. Goyette was later transported to Troop D where he was charged with Possession of Narcotics 21a-279a, Possession of Narcotics WITS 21a-278b and Operating a Drug Factory 21a-277c. Goyette was processed and released on a $25,000 bond and is to appear at Danielson Superior Court on 12/28/16 for the aforementioned charges.
