Police in Old Saybrook have arrested three people in town on drug charges. They say it started when tenants of a Super 8 motel on Spencer Plains Road told police someone tried to break into their room Tuesday.
Officers subsequently picked up 34 year old Eric Griswold and charged him with burglary, criminal mischief, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He’s being held on ten thousand dollars bond.
In the meantime, the burglary probe led investigators to search the tenants’ room and vehicle. Officers found a half-pound of marijuana, scales, pipes, packaging materiel and 800 dollars. Under arrest are 20-year-old Jeremy Larkin and a 17-year-old. They’re facing various drug charges and being held on 5-thousand-dollars bond apiece.
