Drug sting gone wild

By Christopher Rice

A Windsor police officer this morning pleaded not guilty to charges that he unlawfully injured a man when he shot him during an undercover drug sting in November.

Ryan Palmer, 28, was indicted this week on charges of felonious aggravated assault with a weapon and a misdemeanor count of reckless endangerment. Following his hearing in Windsor Superior Court, he was released on conditions, including that he not possess a firearm.
Palmer has been on duty since the Nov. 16 incident. His job status was unclear immediately after the hearing.

Nov. 18 2014, drug suspect Jorge Burgos, 35, of Quechee, underwent surgery and spent several days in the hospital.

Burgos was initially charged with aggravated assault for allegedly trying to run over Palmer and another officer after Windsor Police said they used text messages to lure Burgos and his girlfriend, who was wanted by authorities in two states, to a meeting in a parking lot.

That charge against Burgos was eventually dropped, however, and Vermont State Police were brought in to investigate the officer-involved shooting.

In November, Windsor Police said the real purpose of their sting operation was to arrest Burgos’ girlfriend, Brittany Smith, on Vermont and New Hampshire warrants alleging heroin sales and identity theft.

The texts that brought the pair to the scene were meant to make it seem as if a drug transaction were being arranged, police said.

Palmer and Officer Christopher Connor, wearing plain clothes over their police uniforms and weapons, drove to the meeting in a pickup, Detective Sgt. Robert Patten wrote in his report.

Burgos arrived in a Honda with Smith in the passenger seat and pulled into a small parking lot across Route 5 from the American Precision Museum.

Palmer and Connor got out of their pickup with guns drawn and shouted “Get out of the car!” repeatedly, demanding that Burgos and Smith show their hands, Patten recounted, saying Palmer warned “he would shoot.”

As police cruisers arrived with lights flashing, Patten said, Burgos backed up to the edge of the parking lot, then accelerated.

“Officer Palmer avoided being struck by the (car) by sidestepping and shooting his firearm in the process,” the detective wrote.

“Officer Connor was adamant that had Officer Palmer not been able to sidestep (the car), Burgos would have run him over,” Patten said.

Burgos and Smith were chased to Claremont, N.H., and arrested.

Burgos claims the officers never identified themselves when they drew their weapons and demanded that he exit the vehicle. When he didn't comply one of the officers opened fire and that's when Burgos fled for his life.
