On 09/11/17 from 11 am to 7 pm members of the Troop D – “Quality of Life Task Force”, Resident Troopers assigned to the Killingly and Brooklyn Resident Trooper Offices and Officers assigned to the Department of Correction Parole Division conducted a Zero Tolerance Enforcement Operation which targeted the towns of Killingly and East Brooklyn. Troopers broke up into teams of two 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. As a result of this initiative three arrests were made and eight infractions were issued for various offenses.
While on patrol, Troopers arrested 49 year old Douglas Flannery of Danielson for Failure to Appear in the Second Degree. He was placed on a $1500.00 cash/surety bond and is to appear in Danielson Superior Court on 09/28/17. Later in the operation, Troopers arrested 41 year old Kevin Horton of Danielson for Failure to Appear in the Second Degree. He was placed on a $5000.00 cash/surety bond and is to appear in Danielson Superior Court on 09/25/17. Lastly, Troopers arrested 30 year old Seth Barrows of Putnam for Failure to Respond. He was placed on a $500.00 cash/surety bond and is to appear in Danielson Superior Court on 09/21/17.
This is the second zero tolerance operation that has taken place in Troop D’s area of operation this year. These operations were prompted after Troopers received numerous complaints from various business owners and citizens within the borough of Danielson and east Brooklyn. Troopers plan on conducting similar operations throughout the year in an effort to make both areas a safer and friendlier community for business owners, patrons, citizens and visitors to the town.
