     STATE POLICE MAKE ARREST

On February 07, 2008 State Police Detective of the State Police Western District Major Crime Squad arrested accused Thomas Marra, , of 139 Lee Avenue, Bridgeport, the arrest taking place at State Police Troop-G in Bridgeport. Accused Marra was arrested on nine arrest warrants, consisting of over 80 felony counts and misdemeanor counts. The charges are related to narcotics sales (heroin, cocaine, Oxycontin, Methadone), a medical script/pharmacy scheme, larcenies/burglaries, financial crimes, and harassment. 

At the time of this arrest, Marra was free on three separate bonds, stemming from an August 24, 2007 State Police arrest for narcotics violations, a September 24, 2007 State Police arrest of Marra for narcotics violations, and a January 23, 2008 Bridgeport Police arrest of Marra for larceny/burglary. 

The Connecticut State Police investigation into Marra began when leads were developed into a March 4, 2004 burglary of a Southbury home.   This burglary involved the theft of a safe from the Southbury home that contained approximately $90,000.00 in valuables, including cash, jewelry, and a handgun.
