An anonymous tip led to the arrest of a pair of Fairfield County teenagers who were allegedly selling marijuana in Trumbull.
Shortly before 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13, investigators from the Trumbull Police Department received an anonymous report of a suspicious vehicle that was occupied by two men in a wooded area near the intersection of West Wind Road and Lauderdale Drive.
Upon arrival at the scene, police said that the officers found the vehicle occupied by three men with a strong scent of marijuana coming from the inside of the car. Officers proceeded to remove the men from the car, and conducted a sweep of the vehicle with a Trumbull Police Department canine, who is trained in drug detection, which found that there were narcotics in the car.
Police said that further search of the vehicle found more than four ounces of marijuana inside, “which was packaged in a way to indicate that it was being sold to others.”
Officers arrested the operator of the vehicle, Kevin Gamarro, 18, and his passenger, Joseph Turner, 19, both of Trumbull, who were taken into custody and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and operating a drug factory. Both are being held in lieu of $10,000 bond. The third party was released at the scene.
Gamarro and Turner are both due in court on Wednesday, June 20 to answer the charges.
