SUMMARY OF INCIDENT: On May 20, 2016, a joint investigation with the Vermont Drug Task Force, Newport City Police Department, Orleans County Sheriff’s Department, Homeland Security Investigations, Vermont Attorney General’s Office, and the Orleans County State Attorney’s Office, resulted in the arrest of Terry Parson Jr, and on May 21, the execution of a search warrant at 60 Cottage Lane, in Barton, VT.  Members of the Vermont State Police Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement Team executed a warrant with the assistance of the Vermont Hazardous Material Unit, Barton Fire Department, Barton Ambulance, and the Vermont Drug Task Force, at the 60 Cottage Lane, Barton residence.  Evidence of the manufacturing of methamphetamine was seized at the residence.

 

The investigation continued through late May and early June.  Beginning June 14, members of the Vermont Drug Task Force, Homeland Security Investigations, Newport Police Department, Orleans County Sheriff’s Department, and Vermont State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigations and Uniform Division coordinated the arrest of six individuals for Conspiracy for Manufacturing Methamphetamine.  A seventh, Terry Parson Jr, was already incarcerated from the May 20th search warrant.
