Guns found at cop killer's home
GREENLAND — Investigators seized a 9 mm pistol and a .357-caliber revolver from the home of the gunman who shot and killed Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney and wounded four other officers.
Associate Attorney General Jane Young said ballistics testing must still be done to confirm whether the two weapons found inside Cullen Mutrie's home at 517 Post Road were the ones used in the deadly shootings on April 12.
The guns were among 39 items removed from the residence through a search warrant, which included items found not only in the house but the surrounding property and the driveway.
The items discovered on the property included the guns, a rifle, ammunition, drugs, drug paraphernalia, a bong, a digital scale, green vegetative matter, medication, video, notes, glasses, cell phones, currency, a vest, targets, shotgun shells, powder, two laptops, swabs, among other things.
The shootout occurred when members of the Attorney General's Drug Task Force showed up at the home on the night of April 12 to serve a search warrant related to an investigation into alleged drug dealing by Mutrie and his girlfriend, Brittany Tibbetts.
Tibbetts allegedly sold Oxycodone pills on Jan. 30 to an informant working with the drug task force. Tibbetts allegedly made the sale at the residence, where Mutrie was also believed to have been selling Oxycodone for some time.
A search warrant application said police planned to look for Oxycodone Hydrochloride and cocaine in their search that night.
But the raid took a deadly turn when officers came under fire by Mutrie. Maloney suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the head and four other officers working with the task force were wounded. Mutrie later shot and killed Tibbetts and then committed suicide, prosecutors said.
Because there is no one to prosecute, Young said the Attorney General's Office will be releasing information from time to time as investigators confirm certain facts in the case.
State Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the fatal shooting.
