Drug Bust in Rutland

In what was described as a “massive” drug bust in Rutland, VT this month, police raided a motel and confiscated both crack and heroin. Seized were 520 bags of heroin and more than 5 ounces of crack cocaine.

Those are certainly amounts that would point to a dealer or a resupply of an existing network. The accused, Eugene White, is from Brooklyn, NY. That might explain the motel room. It also might illustrate one way Vermont is supplied with heavy narcotics. After all, it’s about a 6 hour Amtrak ride from Penn Station to Rutland – a great deal at $67.00.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there was anything further in the investigation. So unless Mr. White flips on his network, nothing more will come of it. Right now, he’s in jail with a half-million dollar bond.

The plain fact is that we are always going to be vulnerable to interstate trafficking in drugs. There’s just no way to plug all the holes and we certainly aren’t going to restrict our citizens’ freedom of movement. As long as someone can get product elsewhere and bring it into Vermont, and there is a demand, these things are going to continue. What might work better for the police is nabbing the locals who participate, either in the sales or the purchase of this junk. Police aren’t saying why they dropped the hammer when they did instead of following the drugs to the next stop on the distribution trail.

On the upside, that’s a lot of drugs to take off the streets. While “massive” might be an exaggeration ($22,000 street value) it was a pretty good haul. Getting 520 doses of heroin off the streets is a good deal all around. So, hat’s off to the coppers on this one.
