Baggies of fentanyl stamped with a Willy Wonka symbol were seized by St. Johnsbury Police while making an arrest of a local man. William Garrett, 37, of St. Johnsbury, was taken into custody by Cpl. George Johnson on Friday afternoon after Johnson reportedly found him intoxicated and in violation of court orders while walking along Caledonia Street. It was just after 2:30 p.m. on Friday when police were told that Garrett had gone in and out of the Champlain Store multiple times buying alcohol and that he appeared to be under the influence. Cpl. Johnson said he responded to the call knowing Garrett had court-imposed conditions of release to not consume alcohol.
