Unfortunately for the honest and hard working residents of Benningon VT a sub-culture of ex-con and convicted felon drug dealers have slithered into Bennington and set up shop. Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Eugenia Cowles, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Vermont, Delano A. Reid, Special Agent in Charge of the New York Field Division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (“ATF”), William J. Bratton, the Commissioner of the New York City Police Department (“NYPD”), Michael Greco, the United States Marshal for the Southern District of New York, and Colonel Thomas L’Esperance, Director of the Vermont State Police (“VSP”), announced the unsealing yesterday of an indictment charging 12 defendants with participating in a conspiracy to transport large quantities of crack cocaine and heroin from locations in New York City (Bronx and Staten Island), to Bennington, Vermont, for resale in Bennington. 

Seven of the 12 defendants were also charged with possessing and using firearms in connection with the narcotics trafficking conspiracy. These defendants allegedly peddled crack cocaine and heroin, shuttling from Manhattan and the Bronx to Bennington, Vermont. Illegal drugs, and the guns that go with them. During the time period charged in the Indictment, members of the conspiracy obtained crack and heroin from locations in New York City, including Manhattan and the Bronx, and then transported the crack and heroin to Vermont, for distribution in and around Bennington, Vermont. The members of the conspiracy sold crack and heroin from private apartments on Main St or Pageant St and other locations and certain motels in the Bennington area. Many of the members of the conspiracy used firearms in connection with their narcotics trafficking, see link for list of names https://www.justice.gov/usao-sdny/pr/twelve-charged-manhattan-federal-court-narcotics-trafficking-and-firearms-possession

The D.E.A., F.B.I., A.T.F. with N.Y.P.D., Vermont State Police and Bennigton Police Department Continue to Indict, Arrest and Convict Drug Traffickers Bringing Drugs From the Bronx and Staten Island in NYC. Bennington VT is the epicenter of the drug world in New England, every ex-con dirtball and convicted felon on the East Coast from New York to Florida flocks to Bennington, no felon registration in VT and easy public assistance. Your next door neighbor on Main St or Pageant St in Bennington VT could be an ex-con drug dealer who did time for rape and murder and not even the local police department would know about him.

Hailey Clark, 20, is just out of jail in Bennington, where she was forced to quit her heroin habit. With a felony conviction for selling and possession, she cannot find work. She has no home and is staying with a friend. Stephanie Predel, a stick-thin 23-year-old freshly out of jail in Bennigton VT, said she was off heroin. But she knows precisely where she could get more drugs if she ever wanted them — at the support meetings for addicts. “I can get most of my drugs right at the meeting,” she said. “Drug dealers go because they know they’re going to get business.” She added, “People are going into the bathroom at support meetings to get high in Bennington.”

The Vermont Drug Task Force said Wednesday that many of the arrests were conducted Tuesday and that 19 people are cited to appear in Vermont Superior Court, either in Bennington or Rutland counties. Ten more are facing federal indictments, these being from arrests that have taken place over the past weeks. One person from Bennington is still being sought by police. “All of these arrests were the culmination of enforcement efforts over the past year, specifically targeting those individuals involved in the distribution of illicit drugs,” reads a release from the Task Force, which collaborated with the Federal Bureau of Investigations, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives

Police did not specify which state court their cases would be processed through. U.S. Attorney Eric Miller said the arrests are the latest development in an effort over the last several years to crack down on a “loosely affiliated group” that has been bringing “a lot of heroin and a lot of crack” to Bennington Vermont from out of state. Most of those arrested this week are Vermonters, according to authorities. Miller said the network has two components: traffickers who bring drugs in from out of state, and residents who support them with housing, like on Main Street or Pageant St and other locations and certain motels in the Bennington area with other resources and connections to customers.
