Five local men charged with illegal deer hunting

November 16, 2011

From TheDay.com

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Environmental Conservation Police have arrested five men in the Mystic, Groton and Ledyard areas for illegally hunting for deer on the first day of deer-hunting season.

EnCon police said the men did not have written permission from the property owner to hunt on the private land they were on in Cornwall. They were also not wearing the 400 square inches of fluorescent orange that is required for safety reasons, police said.

Charged with deer hunting without written consent of the property owner and failure to wear fluorescent orange were: Randy P. Harris, 30, of Mystic; Gregory Dubrule, 60, of Groton; Ryan Dubrule, 28, of Groton; Michael Wagner, 25, of Gales Ferry; and Stephen Hickey, 47, of Groton.

Harris, Wagner and Hickey were also charged with illegal deer hunting.

Each charge carries a possible $200 to $500 fine and/or imprisonment.

Wagner was allegedly in possession of an AR-15 style rifle in a caliber that is not permitted for deer hunting in Connecticut, according to police.
Police also found a .22 caliber rifle with a homemade silencer, which is illegal to possess or hunt with, in the hunting cabin the five men were allegedly staying at.

In all, police seized six rifles of various calibers.

All five have been released on bond and are due to appear in Bantam Superior Court on Dec. 5.
