Massachusetts State Police Media Release—11062017—State Police Arrest three from Vermont For Possession of Heroin

On Saturday November 4 at 1:30 a.m. Trooper Scott Boutell observed a red Ford Focus in the right travel lane Route 91 north bound. He noticed that the license plate light was not working and a loud exhaust noise was coming from the vehicle. A registration check revealed the license plate on the vehicle belonged on a black Volkswagen Jetta. Trooper Boutell followed the Focus off the highway and stopped it at Main Street and Miner Street in Greenfield.

Trooper Boutell observed the Focus was occupied by two males in the front seats and a female in the rear seat. After asking for the registration insurance card and license from the driver, Richard Delisle a 27-year-old male from Richford, Vt., he returned to his cruiser. At this point he found that the paperwork did not include the registration and returned to the Focus a second time. As he walked past the rear passenger he observed her make a quick concealing move toward her right leg knee area and away from him.

At this point he had the front passengers place their hands where they could be seen and radioed for backup. The rear passenger later identified as Amy Raymond a 31-year-old female from Richford, Vt., was taken out of the Focus and placed in the rear of the cruiser. The two other occupants were removed and separated after being checked for weapons.

Trooper Boutell checked the rear seat area for weapons and found an open Folgers Coffee container with a large amount of wax bags in zip lock bags containing heroin. Trooper Jeffrey Murray arrived as back up. All three were placed under arrest. Officer Marissa Smith from Deerfield PD arrived to search the female passenger. Officer Smith recovered 14 wax bags containing heroin off the female passenger.

Trooper Donah and his K-9 Brutus arrived and searched the vehicle for any further narcotics. A wooden crack pipe and red straw with white powder residue were located.

All three were transported to the Shelburne Falls Barracks for booking, the driver Richard Delisle, the front passenger Clifford Delisle a 27-year-old male from Richford, Vt., and the rear passenger Amy Raymond. Bail was set at $10,000 for Richard Delisle and $5,000 for Clifford Delisle and Amy Raymond. All three were transported to the Franklin House of Correction.
