PLAINFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

A couple of speeding stops in Plainfield led to drug charges for two Plainfield men.

Police said they pulled over 33-year-old Chad Tatsey of Moosup in the area of Plainfield High School just after 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

They were conducting "stationary traffic enforcement" in the area at the time.

They said they stopped Tatsey for traveling unreasonably fast and discovered that he had 334 bags of heroin on him.

He was arrested and charged with speeding, possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell and possession within 1,500 feet of a school zone.

Tatsey was held on a $75,000 bond and scheduled to be arraigned in Danielson Superior Court Thursday.

Before Tatsey's arrest, police said they stopped 20-year-old Jacob Goins of Plainfield for speeding as well.

They said Goins had been traveling 40 mph in a 25 mph zone on Ward Avenue just before 8 p.m.

Once stopped, police said they smelled marijuana. A search of the vehicle revealed 3 ounces and drug paraphernalia.

Goins was charged with traveling unreasonable fast, possession of over a half ounce of marijuana, possession with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was held on a $5,000 bond which was lowered by the bail commissioner.

He'll face a judge in Danielson Superior Court Thursday.
