The investigation began Sept. 24 when Robin Thibodeau, 27, of Town View Drive, New Milford, was found dead in his home from a heroin overdose, according to court documents. He had been released three days earlier from a drug rehabilitation center, court documents state.
Thibodeau’s phone, found in his bedroom, had text messages between him and Tamburri from the morning of Sept. 23. The texts revealed the two planned to meet that night and Tamburri was going to bring 10 heroin packets — nine for Thibodeau and one for her use — according to court documents.
On the same day Tamburri is accused of the heroin deal, police raided a Park Lane Road home where Hector Dejesus was arrested on drug charges.
New Milford police and the Statewide Narcotics Task Force found a significant amount of heroin, along with digital scales, packaging material and several hundred unused wax folds used to package heroin for street-level distribution, according to New Milford Police Chief Shawn Boyne.
Dejesus was released on $50,000 bond following his arraignment in state Superior Court in Bantam. His next court date is Oct. 27 in state Superior Court in Litchfield to enter a plea.
Lt. Larry Ash, New Milford Police public information officer, said although the incidents occurred on the same day, the cases were not related.
