    Enfield police said a dozen traffic stops Monday led to the arrests of nine people, some of whom are now charged with serious crimes.

    Police focused on one community that residents say has been a problem for a while.

    “If there’s behavior that’s occurring and is inappropriate, law enforcement is there and we’re going to address those concerns,” said Enfield Police Chief Alaric Fox.

    Enfield’s chief said he decided to send officers to the Thompsonville section in larger numbers than usual following resident complaints about criminal activity in the neighborhood. Residents told NBC Connecticut the area is plagued by drugs.

    Police arrested suspects on charges ranging from narcotics possession of violation of a protective order, and more. Officers also recovered a gun, nearly three pounds of marijuana packaged for sale, and almost $1,400 in cash.

    “The officers went into the area and they really saturated a few specific streets at a very specific section within town trying to focus on quality of life issues with an expectation that might lead to other violations and in fact it did,” Alaric said.
