Norwalk Police say Thomasina Fuller of Bridgeport tried to minimize her early Sunday arrest on drug charges by crushing marijuana into the floor of the backseat of the police cruiser. That didn't work because the officers routinely check the back seat at the start of a shift.
Her problems began when officers on patrol spotted a car in the parking lot of Nathaniel Ely School at 2:23 a.m. They pulled in, and she pulled out. Police checked the plate and found that the car belonged to someone with a suspended driver's license. Police turned around and gave chase.
Fuller, 30, stopped in the road, got out and began yelling at the officers. She was placed in the patrol car. Police said they found drugs in her purse, including PCP in aluminum foil and a bag with 70 pieces of crack cocaine. Fuller was arrested and charged with resisting arrest, possession of narcotics, possession of a hallucinogen, possession of a controlled substance, possession of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a school, possession of narcotics with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school, illegal distribution of narcotics and driving under a suspended license. Bond was set at $75,000.
Also in the police blotter:
A sleeping woman was woken up by noises in her South Main Street apartment early Sunday. She saw a man in her apartment, but he didn't hurt her, threaten her or steal anything. He just kept saying, "I'm sorry" in Spanish as he left.
She called 911 at 2:38 a.m. A responding police officer spotted a man who fit the description she gave call. The victim identified the suspect. Police found suspected cocaine in his possession.
Dublas Romera-Rivera, 22, was charged with breach of peace, criminal trespass and possession of narcotics. Bond was set at $7,500.
