NORWALK, Conn. -- A Mount Vernon, N.Y., man was arrested in Norwalk on Friday after police said they found crack cocaine in his car.

Earl Henry, 30, was arrested on charges of possession of narcotics, possession of less than 4 ounces of marijuana, sale of narcotics, sale near a school and possession near a school. He was held on $50,000 bond and will appear in court July 21.

Patrol officers saw Henry sitting in a car in an alleyway off Ely Avenue with the door open and the light on inside Friday morning, according to the police report.

The officers approached Henry because they knew he didn't live at the address, and he began walking away from the car, the report stated.

After checking to see whether someone had broken into the car, officers found the doors were locked but crack cocaine was visible in its console, the report stated.

Officers located Henry and the keys to the car. Henry told officers that he didn't know anything about the car or the keys, but police said they found an envelope in the car with his name on it.

They also found two bags of crack cocaine, totaling 11.4 grams and a small amount of marijuana, police said.
