Police Blotter: Breaking Probation and Drugging and Driving

This information was provided by area police departments. Neither arrests nor charges indicate a conviction, and neither means that a person is guilty of what police allege.


On August 17, Bethel Police assisted probation officers with the interview of Frank Sweeney, 57, of Greenwood Ave, Bethel.  Sweeney was released from that interview and was driven to Linda Lane by an acquaintance.  Shortly after, probation officers made a phone call to the Linda Lane home.  They realized there was a problem and  Bethel Police hurried to the residence, just as Police Dispatch received an emergency 911 call from that home.  The officers saw Sweeney attempting to flee from the backyard but he was quickly apprehended by the officers, who found that when Sweeney arrived at the Linda Lane home, he became involved in a verbal argument and he broke several items in the home including a glass table.

He resisted being handcuffed and was charged with Disorderly Conduct, Criminal Mischief, and Interfering with an Officer.  He was held on a $2,500 bond.  


James Monroe, 31, of Parmalee Hill Rd, Newtown, CT was charged with Driving Under the Influence, Possession of Narcotics, and Possession of Paraphernalia after he used narcotics inside of his car and then had a car accident.  He was held on a $750 bond.
