Brookfield Police Bust Drug, Weapon Dealers on Blackwood

Investigation leads to arrests in alleged drug and weapons operation in Brookfield.

Brookfield police executed search warrants of a home and vehicle at 14 Blackwood Road on August 8, coming away with drugs, weapons, manufacturing and packaging materials and two arrests.

At 6:30 p.m., police searched 14 Blackwood Road relative to a long-running narcotics investigation. According to police reports, various drugs, as well as packaging material, scales and other assorted paraphernalia were found.

Resident Michael Myers, 29, was placed under arrest and held on $100,000 bond on the following charges:

  • Narcotics not kept in original containers
  • Possession of a controlled substance: narcotics
  • Possession of a controlled substance: non-narcotics
  • Drug paraphernalia
  • Possession of narcotics with intent to sell
  • Unauthorized manufacturing or sale of drugs involving minors
  • Two counts of possession with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school

According to court documents, Myers is expected to enter a plea at his next court appearance on August 20.

Myers will also be in Danbury Superior Court on August 20 for a continuation of pre-trial hearings from an arrest in Danbury on February 29 in which he was charged with — and pled “not guilty” to — use of drug paraphernalia, possession of narcotics, two counts of possession of drugs by a non-student near a school, failure to keep narcotics in original container, sale of illegal drugs and five motor vehicle infractions.

On August 8, at 8:12 p.m., Brookfield officers also conducted a search of a vehicle owned by Stephanie Myers, 30, of Blackwood Road, on a search warrant stemming from the investigation.

A weapon, pills and paraphernalia were located in the search and police took Stephanie Myers into custody. She was held on $30,000 bond and charged with carrying and sale of dangerous weapons, possession of a controlled substance, narcotics not kept in original containers and illegal manufacturing or sale of drugs with intent to sell.

Stephanie Myers was arraigned and released on a promise to appear in court on August 28, when she is expected to enter a plea.

Aaron are you certain it is house number 14?? I lived on Blackwood, I dont think those individuals live there. I thought it was a different house.

Just doubled checked with the police — that is the correct address.

another great job by brookfield's police department!! one question; why does it take so long to investigate drug dealers before arresting them? aren't they more likely to get more people addicted while these investigations are taking place?
Brian August 20, 2012 at 05:15 PM
That is the correct address; I live around the corner and watched the get walked out of the house. I know an older couple with a different name owns and lives at the house, but I am unsure if these two are related or just tenants.
Brian August 20, 2012 at 05:18 PM
Great job BPD! One neighborhood dealer busted, one to go.
LFerrara August 20, 2012 at 07:35 PM
Yes Brian, that was why I was confused. It is an older couple who lives there, never saw individuals that age living there...but obviously that changed since I left. Very surprising to hear this. Imagine that...right under our noses. And yes, GREAT job Brookfield PD.

Great Job Brookfield PD...Newtown PD could learn a thing or two from you guys
Andrew Turkenkopf August 20, 2012 at 10:34 PM
you could arrest every drug dealer and there would still be people becoming addicted and using drugs (plus new dealers would fill the void) and since dealers probably don't have as big as advertising budgets as one might think, I think they more fill a demand rather than create it to the extent you seem to suggest.

What happened to supporting small, independent, local businesses???? :-p

Hmmm, if they really cared about arresting dealers and stopping drug use, you'd think they'd just roll into the BHS student parking lot anytime in the evening during the summer.

Sock puppet.......you got that right!

Isn't it ironic that James Kelly, 28, of Alexander Drive was arrested 2 weeks prior and didn't even live a half mile away from them...
Eamus Mets August 22, 2012 at 05:43 PM
No ironic, that is not ironic. Coincidental perhaps, but not ironic. If the arrested had just received a good citizenship award it would be ironic. If their landlords were on an anti-drug task force it would be ironic. But someone else being arrested nearby is not ironic.

Not ironic because they were all in on it together, amongst other people. I wouldn't be surprised if there are more arrests coming...

What an idiotic statement
Matt agustin September 01, 2012 at 06:15 PM
Don't you think drug dealers are smart enough to not go within 100 feet of a school with drugs, or large amounts of drugs on them? They are, the people who hang out at the high school in the evening are nothing more than sports players with nothing to do but bs around in the parking lot. Funny seeing how ignorant this entire town really is. Believe it or not "drug dealers" are smarter than one would think.

They are smarter than you think. Who would think a successful drug dealer is dumb enough to sell in a school parking lot? Therefore, no reason to patrol the parking lot. And also the amount of dealers that get caught because they were pulled over for having a headlight out or some minor traffic violation does not provide great support for your premise. You probably think deals don't happen in school either.
