Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith reports the arrest of a 51-year-old Southeast resident at the request of Connecticut State Police.
Officials from the Connecticut State Police contacted sheriff’s investigators and asked them to execute an outstanding warrant for James E. Barry of Mountain Brook Drive.
According to the warrant, Mr. Barry has been wanted for the Sale of Narcotics by the State of Connecticut since April of 2009.
