NORWALK, Conn. — A man who walked into Norwalk Hospital after being shot in the stomach last month was arrested on drug charges Tuesday after officers searched his car and found just under a half-pound of marijuana, police said.
Dakary Watkins, 23, of 40 Stillwater Ave., Stamford, is facing a pair of drug charges after police executed a search warrant of his vehicle after the shooting, police said. Officers found a half-pound of marijuana packaged for sale tucked in an area behind boxes and a Whole Foods bag in his vehicle, said Sgt. Shannon Sherry.
Watkins walked into Norwalk Hospital on Dec. 20 suffering from the gunshot wound and left his vehicle out front, police said. A window was shot out in the car, Sherry said. Watkins has not been cooperative with police in the investigation, she said.
Sgt. Nick Kougioumtzidis is the investigating detective in the case, Sherry said.
