NORWALK, Conn. -- Four young men were arrested in Norwalk after they were found in a car with marijuana and guns, according to police.

Shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday, members of the Norwalk Police Strategic Narcotics Enforcement Team responded to a citizen complaint of a suspicious vehicle in the area of Sheriden Street and Woodward Avenue, police said. Officers quickly located the vehicle and spoke with the four male occupants.

Police said that the offices smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle and saw one of the occupants, 24 year-old Jimmie Springer of Stamford, holding a marijuana cigarette.
