A motorist who sped under the closing security gate at Norwalk Police Headquarters Wednesday and leapt out to tell an officer her female passenger had taken her hostage ended up getting arrested on narcotics charges.
Lisa Tamburri, 24, of Norwalk said two women jumped into her Ford Explorer to kidnap her at the South Norwalk train station after she dropped a friend off, police reported.
The 37-year-old passenger said Tamburri was on PCP, police said. The passenger told police she, Tamburri and another woman had been smoking PCP earlier in Bridgeport and that when they ran out, Tamburri volunteered to drive them to Stamford to get more. Eventually, they decided to go to the South Norwalk train station.
Tamburri began making up stories about being abducted by two women after she got an angry phone call from her boyfriend wondering where she had been, according to the passenger. After the other friend got out at the train station, Tamburri raced for the police station.
Police said Tamburri seemed "out of it." Police found suspected PCP and marijuana in the car, and a hollowed out cigar used for smoking drugs. Tamburri was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond was set at $2,000.
Tamburri's claim of being kidnapped got the 17-year-old occupant of the Bridgeport residence arrested on three failure to appear warrants.
