A Norwalk man was sleeping at 8:09 a.m. Friday when police entered his bedroom to arrest him with three warrants on failure to appear in court charges. A knotted bag of crack cocaine, two ziplock bags of marijuana and a drug scale were at the foot of the bed, in plain view, police say. Adrian Carter, 20, of 13 Lynes St., was arrested and held on $295,000 bond.
Police say other residents of the home let them in. They seized 7 grams of crack, $60 and a cell phone. The scale had drug residue on it. The two ziplock bags contained 15 smaller bags of marijuana. Carter was charged with two counts of illegal manufacture, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of less than 4 ounces of marijuana, possession of narcotics and three counts of failure to appear. He will appear in court Tuesday.
Also on the police blotter:
A man walking on the railroad bridge over Washington Street early Sunday refused to come down, Norwalk police said. Two officers went onto the railroad tracks to pursue him. While they were there, two trains passed on adjacent tracks.
Timothy Cook, 24, of Milford, was spotted at 12:25 a.m. Sunday, walking south on the northbound track. Police called Metro-North to suspend service after Cook refused to get off the tracks. Officers walked onto the tracks and Cook ran about 250 feet before being caught. Asked where he was going, Cook said he wanted to get home.
He was charged with criminal trespass, reckless endangerment and interfering with a police officer. Bond was set at $500.
A second floor resident of 19 Wakerobin Road woke up at about 5 p.m. Sunday to find his first-floor neighbor trying to break in. It wasn't the first time, he said.
