    Vermont State Police Trooper Jesse Dambrackas explained that just before midnight on Thursday, June 29th troopers showed up at a residence on Tarbellville Road and determined that 28-year-old Miles O'Donnell had been residing on the property, allegedly without the owner's permission.

    During the investigation, police also discovered quantities of heroin and powdered cocaine among O'Donnell's belongings, Trooper Dambrackas reported.    

    O'Donnell was tracked down and arrested this Thursday and lodged overnight at the Marble Valley Regional Correctional Facility in Rutland for lack of $25,000 bail.  He is due in the Rutland Division of the Vermont Superior Court later today for arraignment on a felony charge of possession of heroin and an accompanying misdemeanor charge of possession of cocaine. 

Miles O'Donnell, 28, of Springfield is facing a felony heroin and a misdemeanor cocaine charge.
