September 2, 2014 Police No Comments

Late Tuesday morning, a Canton officer stopped a woman wanted in a nearby town and found heroin in the process, according to a department press release.

At approximately 11:30 a.m., Canton police received a call from Torrington police to look out for a woman wanted for four warrants on charges that included larceny and failure to appear, police said.

A short time later, Canton officer Adam Gompper observed the suspect’s vehicle and made a motor-vehicle stop on Powder Mill Road, police said.

The suspect, Deitra Hellandbrand, 35, of 181 Berry St., Torrington, was allegedly in possession of 7.2 grams of heroin, according to police.

Police said Gompper arrested her without incident. She was then released to Torrington police to face charges there.

In Canton, Hellanbrand was charged with possession of narcotics, operating under suspension and operating an unregistered motor vehicle.

A non-surety bond in the possession case was set at $15,000 and she is due in court to face those charges on Sept. 11. A court date for the motor vehicle charges was set for Sept. 10. No bond was set for those charges.
