On February 14, 2017 at approximately 5:45 PM members of the Plainfield Police Department executed a narcotics related search and seizure warrant on a residence located at #39 North Chestnut Street in the Wauregan village of Plainfield, Connecticut. As a result of the search and seizure warrant, the Plainfield Police Department seized several bags of heroin, marijuana and other illicit narcotic related substances and paraphernalia. The investigation into narcotic trafficking at the residence was a result of an illegally parked motor vehicle found to be creating a traffic hazard on North Chestnut Street at its intersection with Cross Street in Wauregan. Police located an occupant from the vehicle, Zachary R. Holden (AGE 24) of #43 Highland Street Extension in the Moosup village of Plainfield, at the #39 North Chestnut Street residence along with a female resident. While speaking with Holden and the female resident, police located multiple items related to illegal narcotic activity on the steps outside the residence. In addition, a strong odor of marijuana was emanating from inside the residence. Upon further investigation Holden was found to be in possession of multiple bags of heroin at which point Holden was taken into custody. The Plainfield Police Department then secured the residence and subsequently applied for and obtained a court issued search and seizure warrant granting permission for the police to search the residence for additional illicit narcotic and drug related items. During the execution of the search and seizure warrant police obtained the additional evidence related to the illegal sale of narcotics. Zachary R. Holden was charged with Illegal Possession of Heroin and released on a $2,500 bond. He is scheduled to appear in the Danielson Superior Court on February 27, 2017. Additional arrests related to the illegal sale and possession of narcotics from the residence are expected. The Plainfield Police Department would like to remind residents that they can contact the police department directly at any time for suspicious activity at 860.564.0804 or anonymously at 860.564.7065.
