FBI Search In Newington Is Drug-Related, Police Say

Armed with a warrant, federal agents and police swarmed a Newington neighborhood early Thursday.

More than a dozen FBI agents and local officers searched the house at 285 Maple Hill Avenue, some carrying out paper bags and boxes of evidence. The agency did not say why they were searching the single-family home, but a Hartford police official said the search was drug-related and part of a larger operation.

Hartford Deputy Chief Brian Foley said officers from the capital city were at the scene of the search, which he said was one of “multiple narcotics search warrant operations in the region.”

There is no danger to residents, he said.
