NORWALK, Conn. — A Stamford man tried to escape police in Norwalk after they tried to pull him over on Monday, but didn't make it very far and was arrested with large amounts of cash, according to the Hour.

Police told the Hour that officers tried to pull over 36-year-old Emanuel Tyson near the intersection of Water Street and Raymond Street after observing suspicious activity. Tyson did not stop his car, but instead kept driving onto the nearby Stroffolino Bridge, the Hour reported.

The officers did not pursue, but shortly after a sergeant stopped the car right over the bridge on Fort Point Street, according to the Hour. Tyson was found with large amounts of money stuffed into his pockets, the Hour reported. A K-9 search of the car did not turn anything else up, according to the Hour.

Tyson was charged with interfering with an officer, engaging in pursuit, failure to use a turn signal, failure to bring a motor vehicle to a full stop, and mutilated plate. His bond was set at $500.
