On the morning of Tuesday, June 1, 2021, Trumbull police arrested a man for growing marijuana plants and operating a drug factory at his home in Trumbull. Matthew Fabian, age 49, of 131 Daniels Farm Rd. was taken into custody after he had been observed by police moving several marijuana plants around his property and tending to them as the illegally grown plants were kept in various locations around the exterior of his residence.
Detectives were in the Daniels Farm Rd. area when they smelled the distinct odor of freshly growing marijuana plants emitting from Fabian’s property. Detectives also observed these plants in several locations on the property before police obtained and executed a search warrant for the premises. The search resulted in the recovery of over twenty (20) marijuana plants, various marijuana related growing and packaging materials, drug paraphernalia, and other drug operation related items, to include tents, lights, fans, scales, and chemicals which were all functioning and located inside of the residence.
Fabian cooperated with police and was charged with Cultivation of Marijuana, and Operation of a Drug Factory. He was held on a $100,000 bond, and is scheduled to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court on June 7, 2021.
