On 09/20/2019 at approximately 7:30 PM, members of the Troop D – Quality of Life Task Force stopped a vehicle on I-395 Southbound in Plainfield for a motor vehicle violation. Troopers approached the car and identified the driver as 38 year old Eric Terwilliger of Plainfield. While interviewing Terwilliger, Troopers became suspicious that narcotics may be present within the vehicle. K9 Ambrie, a female black Labrador trained in narcotic detection, was used to sniff Terwilliger and gave a very strong alert to his waistband area. Terwilliger then admitted to having fentanyl hidden on his person and turned over 40 bags of fentanyl over to Troopers. Terwilliger was placed under arrest without incident and transported to Troop D where he was processed and charged with Possession of Narcotics. Terwilliger was released on a $5,000.00 bond and is to appear in Danielson Superior Court on 10/02/2019.
Terwilliger has been Arrested twice before in Connecticut. Previous arrests were with the Plainfield Police Department.
