Ledyard — On Monday, police pulled over a vehicle suspected to be connected with a residential burglary in Ledyard. The three people inside were arrested on drug charges, but one also was charged with third-degree burglary.

Zachary Waryck, 30, of New London was arrested in connection with the burglary as well as on charges of possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to keep prescriptions in original container.

In the car with Waryck was Ashli Elliott, 32, of New London, who was charged with possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia, and Shane Clemons, 36, of Montville who was charged with possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license.

Ledyard police stopped the vehicle on Route 12 in the area of Chapman Lane, according to a department news release. “Officers found 3 occupants. Each of the occupants were found to be in possession of fentanyl and needles,” it said.

In 2014, Waryck was charged with burglarizing a home in the Gales Ferry section of Ledyard and stealing numerous pieces of jewelry. He has faced drug charges in the past and has convictions on charges that include failure to appear in court, criminal trespass, criminal mischief, identity theft, assault and violation of a protective order. His next court date is Oct. 15 in New London.

Clemons has been convicted of failure to appear in court, driving with a suspended license and larceny in the past. He is due in court in New London on Sept. 8.
