BURLINGTON — The Burlington Resident State Trooper’s Office initiated an investigation back in May of 2017 after they were made aware of suspicious activity, specifically a high volume of vehicle traffic, consistent with the sale of narcotics, at a single family farmhouse located at 51 Main Street in the Whigville section of Burlington.
On December 27, 2017, after a lengthy 7-month undercover investigation aided by the Connecticut State Police, the Statewide Narcotics Task Force and the Bristol Police Narcotic Unit, several search and seizure warrants were served to, the suspect, Gregory Hebert, and vehicles associated with this incident.
Through the course of the search, officers, troopers and detectives seized an illegally obtained and possessed AK-47-type assault rifle, a hunting rifle, high capacity magazine(s), ammunition, crack cocaine, heroin and cash.
Following the search, convicted felon, Gregory J. Hebert — dob 5/18/72 — of Burlington, was taken into custody and transported to Troop L-Litchfield where he was charged with Possession of an Assault Weapon, Criminal Possession of a Firearm and Sale of a Hallucinogen.
Hebert was released after posting $100,000.00 and scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on January 10, 2018
