NORWALK, Conn. – A Clinton man was arrested after being found with marijuana, cocaine and suspected LSD in a Norwalk parking lot Sunday night, police said.
Norwalk Police officers on patrol saw a car parked in a Connecticut Avenue lot after business hours Sunday evening, according to police reports. Officers saw a man sitting in the car duck down out of view briefly as the patrol car pulled up, and stopped to talk with the man.
A glass pipe filled with marijuana and a metal grinder were in plain view inside the car as officers approached, police said. Christopher Feola, 19, of Clinton was inside the car at the time, according to the arrest report.
During a pat-down, police found three plastic bags in Feola’s pockets containing powdered cocaine, police said. An unlabeled prescription pill bottle was also in his pocket. The bottle contained a small crystal cube that police believe was laced with LSD, according to the police report. The substance was sent for toxicology studies which were not yet available Monday, police said.
During the arrest a 21-year-old Greenwich man arrived and told police that the car was his, but denied any knowledge of the drugs inside, according to police reports. The man was released from the scene without charges.
Feola was arrested and charged with trespassing, possession of narcotics, possession of a hallucinogen, and added charges for being within 1,500 feet of a school. He was also issued a ticket for marijuana possession. He was released on a $500 bond, and is due in court on Oct. 28.
