CT State Police Troop D

Just before midnight, Connecticut State Police were dispatched to a report of a domestic violence incident on Wednesday, September 5th.  Troopers met with the female victim who stated  34 year old Keith Therrien had shoved her to the ground, threw items at her and spit on her before she could escape and call 911.

The female victim also had an active protective order against Therrien, which was violated.  Troopers located Therrien in a residence in Thompson hiding under a pile of blankets and pillows.  He was placed under arrest and transported to the barracks of Troop D where he was charged with Violation of a Protection Order, Assault 3rd and Disorderly Conduct.

Therrien was held on a $5,000 cash/surety bond and made an appearance in Danielson Superior Court today.

Keith Therrien has a long criminal record, dating back to at least 2009, where he was sentenced to federal prison for his part in a drug trafficking ring, according to online reports.
