KILLINGLY, Conn. (WTNH) — Two people have been arrested after state police executed two search and seizure warrants for narcotics.

On Friday evening, Troopers executed two search and seizure warrants following an on-going investigation into heroin trafficking. Troopers were investigating 39-year-old Francisco Fraustro and 32-year-old David Desjardin, both of Killingly, after learning the men may have been using their Litchfield Avenue apartment to store, process, and sell heroin.

Once Troopers got to the apartment, they found both men, as well as several other individuals. Troopers searched the residence, found, and seized approximately 400 bags of heroin prepackaged for sale, $1,300, several bags of synthetic marijuana, a digital scale, and five cell phones.

Both men were arrested and charged with possession of narcotics, possession with intent to sell, and operating a drug factory. Fraustro was also charged with narcotics outside the original container.

Both are held on $75,000 and are due in court on Tuesday.

Troopers say this is the third time in the last five months that they have arrested Fraustro for heroin sales.
