On 05/04/2016 at approximately 7:23pm, a member of the Troop D Quality of Life Task Force was conducting narcotic surveillance in a business parking lot in Brooklyn and observed a drug transaction take place between two vehicles. The Trooper departed his undercover vehicle and approached the suspected drug dealer’s vehicle and identified himself as a State Trooper. The driver, identified as 23 year old Kayla Bourbeau and she admitted to having drugs and handed over a bag containing about 7 grams of marijuana. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed (29) Oxycodone pills inside a plastic container. Bourbeau also had her 4 year old child and her 6 month old baby in the back seat of the car. Bourbeau was arrested and transported back to Troop D. Bourbeau was charged with Possession of Narcotics, (2) counts of Risk of Injury to a Minor, Possession of Marijuana and Narcotics not in the Original Container. Bourbeau was released on a $20,000.00 non-surety bond and is to appear in Danielson Superior Court on 05/24/2017.
