Connecticut parole officers were conducting an in-home parole compliance check on Norton Street when their search uncovered drugs and paraphernalia. On Monday, Oct. 15, Southington police arrested Derick Markavich, 31, as a result of the investigation.
Probation officers located a cardboard box in Markavich’s basement, and the box contained multiple bags of marijuana, multiple bags of hallucinogenic mushrooms, vape oil containing cannabis, digital scales, hypodermic needles, bags consistent with drug packaging, and a pipe consistent with smoking of crack cocaine. Police also found a stolen 2015 Yamaha motorcycle in his possession.
Markavich was charged with possession of narcotics with intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance near a school, illegal manufacturing or distributing drugs, and second degree larceny. He was held on a $50,000 bond and scheduled to appear in Bristol court on Oct. 16.
