On 07/28/2017 at approximately 5:30 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, along with the Killingly Police Officer executed three narcotics related search and seizure warrants at #36 Prospect Ave, apartment C, in the town of Killingly. The search warrants were obtained after an investigation revealed that Julio Valentin (DOB: 05/01/65) and Linda Eldredge (DOB: 07/21/71) were processing and selling heroin from their residence. When Task Force members arrived on scene, they located Valentin on the Danielson footbridge where he was found to be in possession of one bundle (10 bags) of heroin. When entry was made into the apartment, Task Force personnel located Eldredge in the living room. A systematic search of the apartment located another six bundles (60 bags) of heroin pre-packaged for sale and approximately $600.00 dollars in US currency. Both accused’s were then arrested and transported to the Troop D Danielson Barracks where they were both charged with Possession of Heroin WITS 21a-278b and Possession of Heroin 21a-279a. Valentin was held on a $75,000 dollar cash/surety bond and is to appear at Danielson Superior Court on 07/31/17 for the above charges. Eldredge was released on a $25,000 bond and is to appear at Danielson Superior court on 08/09/17 for the above charges.
