FBI, Danbury, Brookfield Police Make Drug Trafficking Bust
A Brookfield man has been arrested as the result of a seven month drug trafficking investigation.
According to the Danbury Police Department, the investigation was sparked after several citizens made complaints claiming that 39-year-old Ramon Monroig of Brookfield had been moving a significant amount of drugs in the area.
The lengthy, multi-agency surveillance effort paid off on Tuesday (July 20) as the Danbury Special Investigations Division (SID), the Community Conditions Unit, General Investigations, the Brookfield Police, and the FBI executed court authorized search and seizure warrants.
Once Monroig and one of his vehicles were seized - along with a substantial amount of both marijuana and cocaine - on Skyline Terrace in Danbury on Tuesday at about 1:45 PM, the task force proceeded to 16 Cornell Rd. in Danbury, and 11 Old Turnpike Rd. in Brookfield. Those searches revealed that Monroig was in possession of even more drugs, as well as weapons, including an assault rifle and illegal high-capacity magazines for the rifle.
Ramon Monroig has been held on a $100,000 bond, and is facing the following charges:
- Possession of Narcotics
- Possession of Narcotics with Intent to Sell
- Possession of Marijuana Greater Than Four Ounces
- Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell
- Criminal Possession of a Firearm
- Criminal Possession of a Pistol
- Criminal Possession of Ammunition by a Felon
- Criminal Possession of High Capacity Magazines
- Risk of Injury to a Child
