Police make big drug bust in Brandon

BRANDON — Police acting on a tip seized over 400 bags of heroin and crack cocaine at a house on Carver Street in Brandon on Feb. 5 and made two arrests in the largest drug bust in Brandon’s recent history.
Brandon Police executed the search warrant at 43 Carver St. at 2:30 p.m. on that Wednesday after receiving information alleging illegal sales of heroin at that location.
Police arrested Duvall W. Fludd, 21, of Brooklyn, N.Y. and Jamie Trinci, 28, who lived in the house. A seven year-old child was removed from the house prior to the execution of the warrant, according to Brandon Police Chief Chris Brickell. Two other individuals in the house were released from the scene and not charged.
Fludd and Trinci were taken into custody and interviewed by police. Fludd was charged with felony possession of cocaine and trafficking heroin. Trinci was charged with possession of heroin and released on a citation to appear in court on March 17.
Fludd was lodged at Marble Valley Correctional Center for lack of $250,000 bail. He was arraigned in Rutland Criminal Court on Feb. 6. Brickell said Fludd had no current ties to Vermont and was unemployed at the time of arrest. Fludd also had a substantial criminal history in New York.
If convicted, Fludd faces up to 35 years in prison. Police estimated the street value of the heroin at $7,600 and the crack cocaine at $1,600.
Trinci was released on a citation as she did not meet the exceptions for bail to be posted and has a minor criminal record.
