Middlebury police search home in gun probe

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police executed a search warrant at 200 Butternut Ridge Drive on Thursday, Sept. 4, as part of what Police Chief Tom Hanley said is an ongoing investigation into a recent residential burglary during which a firearm was allegedly stolen.
Residents of the Butternut Ridge/Mead Lane area saw five police cruisers and the county’s mobile command center parked in their neighborhood, blocking traffic, while officers conducted their search. Seven police officers and two sergeants arrived at the orange, split-level home around 4 p.m. on Thursday. Three adults sat on the lawn out front while police conducted their search.
After removing what officials would describe only as “evidence,” police left at around 5:45 p.m. An officer on the scene said the investigation was not related to the big drug Aug. 29 bust in Bristol, which occurred less than two miles away.
Hanley said on Friday that no one had been arrested at that point in connection with the probe. But officers seized “a couple of items of interest relevant to the investigation,” which are being sent off for analysis.
“The investigation is still in its early stages and is on-going,” Hanley said.  “There will be more coming out of this as we progress.”
