February 07, 2019 - 6:44 pm

KILLINGLY, Conn. (WTIC) - Connecticut State Police have made 20 arrests after a warrant sweep in the patrol area of Troop D in the Eastern District of the state.

From 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, members of the Troop D - "Quality of Life Task Force", the Killingly Resident Troopers Office, the Brooklyn Resident Troopers Office and Danielson - Office of Adult Probation conducted a warrant round up, which targeted people wanted on outstanding arrests warrants.

Law enforcement broke up into teams of two and were assigned multiple arrest warrants, which they served to 20 individuals.

One arrest occurred on Wednesday around 5:45 p.m. when Troopers received information that one of their targets was hiding at a residence on Boys Avenue in Rogers and would likely flee from police.  Troopers from the Killingly Resident Troopers Office and Troopers from Troop D surrounded the house while plain, non uniformed Troopers from QLTF knocked on the door.  A resident answered not knowing it was the police, while uniformed Troopers approached the house and secured the perimeter.

Troopers subsequently located John Fahey hiding in the house and he was arrested for the VOP warrant and charged with Interfering with a Police Officer.  

The other arrests included Violation of Probation (10 arrests), Failure to Appear (eight arrests) and Possession of Heroin (one arrest).

Members of the Connecticut State Police reiterate they are committed to combating drug activity - especially in the "Quiet Corner" - and that anyone with information regarding the illegal sale of narcotics and/or synthetic marijuana and encouraged to call the Troop D QLTF anonymous Tips Hotline at 860-779-4950.  Tips and reports can also be sent via messaging QLTF on their Facebook page.
