Authorities arrested a 24-year-old Stamford man Tuesday evening on multiple drug charges after he was spotted hanging out parked in a handicap parking spot, they explained Wednesday morning.
Christopher Brown, of Stillwater Ave., was observed allegedly double-parked on an angle in two handicap parking spots in the Downtown Stamford area Tuesday at around 9:30 p.m.
When police approached the vehicle, they allegedly found Brown in the driver's seat, who did not have a handicap placard and was discovered to not be handicap, according to police. Additionally, they said he was operating the vehicle with a suspended license.
Police said they then discovered 6 bags of marijuana in Brown's right rear pocket. As he was placed under arrest and an inventory of his vehicle was taken, a bag of crack cocaine was allegedly found on the floor of his backseat, according to police.
Authorities said they then called in a K-9 unit. Further investigation by the dog alerted police to the presense of 19 bags of heroin in the center console arm rest of the vehicle.
Brown was charged with possession of narcotics, sale of certain illicit drugs, possession of a controlled substance, sale of a controlled substance, illegal operation of a controlled substance and improperly parking in a handicapped parking facility. His bond was set at $10,000 and his court date is scheduled for June 4, 2012.
