On 10/24/2017 at approximately 3:24 pm, members of the Troop D Quality of Life Task Force were in Thompson in response to increased complaints of drug dealing in town. QLTF Troopers stopped a red Chevrolet Cobalt for a traffic violation on Riverside Drive just north of Route 131 in Thompson. Troopers arrested the front passenger, 33 year old David Paradis of Webster, MA. The arrest was made on the strength of a 2010 arrest warrant that the Putnam Police Department held for Failure to Appear in the Second Degree. Troopers then developed probable cause to search the car and subsequently located opiate pills inside the vehicle. 25 year old Maxx Marino of Thompson, CT was arrested and charged with Possession of Narcotics and Narcotics Not Inside the Original Container. Both individuals were transported to Troop D, processed and released on cash bonds. Both are due in Danielson Superior Court on November 8, 2017.
QLTF Troopers will continue with an increased presence in Thompson.
