Alleged drug dealer on lam after SWAT team raid

A Springfield, MA man arrested last year for dealing heroin out of an apartment in Barre is now wanted for dealing fentanyl out of a home in the nearby town of Washington, following a SWAT-team drug bust of his alleged accomplices Friday May 13.

Glendon Parrish-Cambell, AKA “B,” age 22, was dealing drugs out of the home of Christopher Emmons, 51, of Washington, until a major tactical squad raid last week, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. According to a May 25 2021 WCAX report, Parrish-Cambell was arrested and jailed on $250,000 bail for distributing heroin from a South Main Street, Barre home. 12,000 bags of heroin reportedly were seized. If convicted he faced up to 36 years in prison. It is unclear how and why he had since been freed.

Nicole LeClair, 34, of Washington and Christopher Emmons, 51, of Washington, were arrested Friday May 13 during search warrants at their residences. LeClair has been charged with distributions of controlled substances that occurred at her residence. Emmons has been charged with knowingly allowing his residence to be a drug-involved premises at which controlled substances were distributed.  Both defendants are scheduled to appear before Chief United States District Judge Geoffrey Crawford today.   

According to court records, during the months of March and April of 2022, law enforcement conducted controlled purchases of heroin/fentanyl and cocaine base from LeClair at her residence. LeClair used her Facebook Messenger account to arrange the transactions at her residence. A Special Agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives obtained a search warrant for LeClair’s residence, which was executed Friday.  During the search, law enforcement seized approximately 170 bags of suspected fentanyl, 5 grams of suspected cocaine base, and a SCCY semi-automatic pistol.  

According to court records, during the months of March and April of 2022, law enforcement conducted controlled purchases of heroin/fentanyl and cocaine base at the residence of Emmons. Law enforcement identified Justin Llano, aka “TJ,” and Parrish-Cambell, aka “B,” as drug traffickers distributing heroin/fentanyl and cocaine base from Emmons’ residence.  Emmons was present during multiple controlled purchases conducted at his residence.  

On one occasion in March, a confidential informant attempted to purchase drugs at Emmons’ residence. During the attempted transaction, Emmons reported to the CI that the drug traffickers had left the residence because law enforcement was conducting traffic stops in the area.  A Special Agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives obtained a search warrant for Emmons property, which was executed Friday. During the search, law enforcement seized 14 firearms (including a sawed-off shotgun), approximately 28 grams of suspected cocaine base, and approximately 400 bags of suspected fentanyl.  

Both Llano and Parrish-Cambell have been charged by Criminal Complaint but remain at large.  Federal arrest warrants have been issued for both men.

  1. So, he was ARRESTED almost a year ago and , the court system allowed him to go free?
    Now, he’s wanted by the FEDS for dealing AGAIN.
    Why do the “leaders” in our state NOT do anything about this threat to our communities??

    Why do progressives STILL lord over the judiciary ?

  2. Well, that’s some fine way to treat our early summer tourists from western Massachusetts! And even the fresh-air host family that allowed him to stay at their place have been arrested? What kind of welcoming, diversity-celebrating attitude are we trying to convey in Vermont these days anyhow? I thought we welcomed enterprising, young folks from downcountry to come up and share in the greenery and fresh air.

    • In an effort to further reduce the obviously discriminatory practice of law as seen in the 802 we should take the truly progressive step and legalize it all. People are responsible and always act responsibly. Add to the list let’s take down the stop signs on the corners as well along with trivial speed limits. They are also some other bothersome constraints to be considered as well.
      With the playing field leveled, we will not be troubled chasing these petty thugs on an endless catch release sieve of our criminal justice program. Case closed. What a relief.

  3. I would be impressed if they captured the one(s) responsible for the cargo ship owned by JP Morgan, filled with tons of cocaine busted in NY harbor a while ago. Meanwhile, at the border, drugs are pouring in with children and women in tow unabated. Our government is working to ensure there will be much more than this measly bust took off the street. Nothing to see here, nothing to come of this, no one is going to jail….carry on.
