Undercover Deputies Make Drug Discovery

The Putnam County Sheriff's Office provided the following information. It does not indicate a conviction.

Police say a 30-year-old Connecticut woman—who was allegedly packaging drugs while parked outside a Southeast business—is facing felony and misdemeanor charges.

Officials arrested Alexandra Cameron-Braley, of Newtown, at about 11 p.m. Aug 18 in the parking lot of a local convenience store, which Donald B. Smith did not name in a report released Wednesday. Members of the agency's Narcotics Enforcement Unit were conducting a surveillance detail at the same location, according to officials. They were working undercover and reportedly saw the defendant "acting in a suspicious manner."

"Upon approaching the vehicle, deputies saw the lone female occupant counting
and repackaging a large quantity of pills believed to be earmarked for distribution," authorities said in the statement. "Their field investigation revealed that she was unlawfully in possession of 239 Opana pills, several Xanax, Oxycodone and Hydrocodone pills, as well as five packets of marijuana."

The defendant is facing two counts of felony third-degree criminal possession of a
controlled substance and four counts of misdemeanor seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree. Police also charged Cameron-Braley with unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.

Following arraignment before Kent Town Justice Kevin Douchkoff, who was acting on behalf of the Southeast Justice Court, Cameron-Braley was sent to the Putnam County Correctional facility on $10,000 bail. She will be due in court at a later date.

Police said that deputies also confiscated a 2002 Honda and $546 from the defendant.

Because of its location at the interstates, Southeast is the distribution point for drugs and crime. We should all remember that since Crossroads 312 will be located at an interstate with the developer proposing a gasoline station and a bank right at the I84 west entrance.

I'm not a supporter of Crossroads 312 at all, but if they do develop that property within the existing zoning, it would make a lot of sense to have a gas station there. For travelers that get off at that exit, it's quite a drive to the nearest gas station. And I'm not concerned that it would become a attraction for criminals. There's plenty of police patrols in that area.
