Connecticut men busted in pot growing ring

Danielson, Conn. (WTNH) – Three Connecticut men face a slew of drug charges after police in two states uncover a hydroponics marijuana growing  ring.      Jeremy Corrao, 32, of Danielson, Timothy Warner, 32, of Putnam and Christopher Goyette, 29, of Putnam were all picked up in Rhode Island after that state’s  High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force executed search warrants at 6 locations.  Members of the Connecticut Statewide Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant of their own at a home on Providence Pike in Danielson.  All told, between the 7 locations, police recovered 248 marijuana plants, 46 pounds of processed pot and $312,678.

The arrests are the result of an investigation that began during the last week of January 2014, when members of the Connecticut Narcotics Task Force contacted their counterparts in Rhode Island in reference to a suspected illegal marijuana distribution network that was being operated within the State of Rhode Island.

Some of searched homes  had medical marijuana patient cards taped to the walls.  Police are not releasing the names of the people appearing on those cards.


Both Warner and Goyette have been released on bail. Corrao’s bail hearing in pending.   All three men will likely be arrested again and face charges here in Connecticut once the Narcotics Task Force finishes  preparing arrest warrants.
