State police arrested two people as part of a heroin bust in Killingly Tuesday.

Troopers said 31-year-old Daniel Baillargeon, also known as Digger, and 33-year-old Tana Dashnaw were arrested as part of a search and seizure warrant execution.

State police said their Quality of Life Task Force, along with the Killingly resident state trooper's office and the Statewide Narcotics Task Force, executed the warrant at 65 Stone Road in Killingly.

They said their investigation revealed that Baillargeon and Dashnaw were selling heroin from that location.

Troopers entered the home but the suspects weren't home. They said they set up surveillance at the Kings Inn in Putnam and found them there around 11 p.m.

Both suspects were detained based on the strength of the warrant, according to state police.

Following a search of the Stone Road residence, troopers said they found more than an ounce of raw heroin, 3.8 grams of cocaine, nearly $8,000 in cash, three cell phones and a concealment device.

Both suspects were arrested an held on bond.

Baillargeon was charged with possession of heroin, possession of heroin with intent to sell and operating a drug factory. He was given a bond of $100,000 and a court date of Aug. 24 in Danielson.

Dashnaw faces the same charges; however, her bond was set at $50,000. She's also due in Danielson Superior Court on Aug. 24.
