Officers on patrol in the area of Manhattan and Pacific streets in Stamford arrested one occupant of a vehicle and issued a summons to the driver on drug-related charges early Monday, police said later that morning.
The officers allegedly initiated the motor vehicle stop because the car did not have an illuminated license plate and the windows were tinted too dark and had no sticker, police said.
While speaking with the driver, officers could reportedly smell marijuana coming from the vehicle, police said. Authorities said a search of the vehicle turned up a zip-locking sandwich bag with what was suspected to be marijuana inside.
Authorities also reported discovering a cigarette that smelled like PCP, to which the passenger of the vehicle, identified by authorities as Richard Rosedom, 24, of Stillwater Ave., allegedly laid claim and confirmed the cigarette contained PCP.
The driver of the vehicle was issued a summons on the marijuana found and the windows being tinted without having the appropriate identification sticker.
Rosedom was charged with possession of a hallucinogen and possession of a controlled substance.
