Wilton police nab two on drug charges


WILTON — In two separate incidents, Wilton Police charged two people last week, one with a prescription drug sale, the other with a drug possession.

Kelly Thibodeau, 32, of Farmington was arrested April 28 on a misdemeanor charge of unlawful trafficking of the prescription drug Xanax from her parked car on Main Street, said Wilton Detective Richard Billian.

Police have recently been watching her actions and conducted an investigation, Billian said. She was arrested after she made a sale of 20 Xanax pills on Thursday, according to police. She didn’t have or couldn’t produce a prescription for the drug, Billian said.

Marijuana and drug paraphernalia was also found in her car, he said.

Thibodeau was bailed from Franklin County Detention Center on Thursday on $3,000 unsecured and has a court appearance scheduled for June 24.

On Friday, police were called to check on the welfare of a man apparently sleeping in his car parked in a lot on the Weld Road, Billian said.


Matthew Kaherl, 19, of Jay, was arrested on a charge of unlawful possession of the prescription drugs Suboxone and Xanax on Friday when Wilton officer Nickolas Zecher made the check and found a plastic baggie with the pills in his lap, Billian said.

When Kaherl got out of the car, he was obviously under the influence of the drug, Billian said. He had pulled over into the lot and was sleeping, he added.

Kaherl also bailed from the detention center on Thursday on $3,000 unsecured and has a court appearance scheduled for June 24.
