NORWALK, Conn. -- After arresting a city man late Sunday afternoon and placing him in a police cruiser to be taken back to headquarters, a police officer in a second vehicle could see some odd behavior by the man.
The arrested man, Trey Williams, 19, of 149 Water St., could be seen moving around and back and forth in the cruiser including turning completely around to look at the following police officer as both vehicles travelled to police headquarters, according to police reports.
After police arrived at headquarters and took Williams out of the vehicle, police discovered a bag with several "rocks" of crack cocaine in it on the rear floor of the cruiser, police said.
Police said members of the Strategic Narcotics Enforcement Team arrested Williams in the area of South Main and Raymond Street - just a short distance from police headquarters - around 5 p.m. They knew he had a warrant for his arrest.
They couldn't search him completely at the scene because he had so many layers of clothing on, said Sgt. Sofia Gulino. But they did discover what they allege was a small amount of marijuana on him.
Williams was charged with six drug related charges and one charge of interfering with a police officer. He was also charged with breach of peace and third-degree criminal trespass in connection with an earlier incident, police said.
His total bond was set at $27,500 and his first scheduled court date is Oct. 26.
