HARTFORD - Suspicious neighbors tipped authorities off to apparent drug sales activity going on at a home right on the edge of downtown White River Junction and that resulted in a raid which was carried out first thing Sunday morning by Hartford police.
Armed with a search warrant, Hartford officers entered 89 Connecticut River Road, a small house overlooking the rail yard which is situated just a few doors past the busy intersection of South Main Street and Sykes Mountain Avenue.
Sgt. Jay Pedro reported that the search team seized hallucinogenic mushrooms, LSD, opiate painkillers, nearly one pound of marijuana, and a loaded handgun before arresting and processing the two men who had been living at the residence on a slate of drug sales and possession charges.
Jarrelle Almestica, 25, of Hartford faces charges of felony possession of marijuana, possession of LSD, possession of a hallucinogenic (Psilocybin mushrooms), and possession of the narcotic Hydrocodone.
