Danielson, CT. (June 22, 2016): The Troop D-Danielson Quality of Life Task Force (QLTF) conducted a Zero Tolerance Enforcement Operation in Danielson and East Brooklyn which resulted in four arrests, and seven infractions issued. On June 22, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., members of the Quality of Life Task Force, the Killingly Resident Trooper’s Office, the Brooklyn Resident Trooper and Troopers from the Troop E – Narcotic Suppression Team conducted a Zero Tolerance Enforcement Operation which targeted the Borough of Danielson and East Brooklyn. Nine plain clothed Troopers working in teams and were assigned a high crime area to conduct foot patrols in. The focus of the operation was to reduce nuisance/street crimes such as loitering, drug use/dealing, disturbances, reckless use of the roadways by pedestrians and others. Troopers assigned to the Danielson area located Faheem Muhammed and Sasha Gould, in separate locations, both who were wanted on active arrest warrants. Muhammed and Gould were taken into custody and transported to Troop D. Troopers assigned to the East Brooklyn area located a suspicious vehicle near the Brooklyn Riverside Little League Field and approached the vehicle to investigate. As a result, Troopers located narcotics, Suboxone strips, other prescription medication pre-packaged for sale and drug paraphernalia. Randy Rioux was arrested and transported back to Troop D. Troopers patrolling the Danielson Footbridge observed suspicious activity occurring under the bridge. David Desjardin was arrested and transported to Troop D after Troopers discovered he was in possession of narcotics. Troopers also issued seven infraction tickets for various offenses to include simple trespass, loitering, and reckless use of the roadway. This is the second time this summer; Troop D Troopers have conducted a Zero Tolerance Operation. These operations were prompted after Troopers received numerous complaints from various business owners and citizens within the borough of Danielson and the Quebec Square Area. Troopers plan on conducting similar operations throughout the summer in an effort to make both areas a safer and friendlier community for business owners, patrons, citizens and visitors to the town.
