Police cite three for trafficking heroin in Bristol
BRISTOL — Bristol police on Sunday cited three local residents for trafficking heroin following an investigation at a South Street home.
Police said on July 16 they responded to the home after being told that someone had found “a quantity of drugs” on the side of the road. Police said two occupants of the home — James Chaloux, 56, and Corrine Louise Cantin, 50 — told them they had disposed of the heroin prior to authorities’ arrival.
Further investigation revealed the heroin had been concealed at a different South Street home, according to police. Police said they searched the two homes and found 205 bags of heroin weighing a combined total of 5.2 grams, having a street value of around $6,150.
Chaloux, Cantin and Derek Anthony Jackson, 49, were all cited with trafficking heroin, according to police, who added Chaloux and Cantin face additional charges of providing false information to law enforcement. They are scheduled to answer the charges on Aug. 7 in Addison Superior Court, criminal division.
Vermont State Police and its K-9 team (including Cpl. Justin Busby) from the New Haven barracks assisted Bristol police in their investigation.
