FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Norwalk man was arrested on a drug charge early Saturday after he was found with 26 baggies of marijuana near a Kings Highway East hookah lounge, police said.
An officer first approached Michael Cayo, 24, of Taylor Avenue, because the car in which he was the passenger was blocking a home’s driveway near Sky Hookah Lounge at 3:30 a.m., police said.
The sergeant saw a blunt marijuana cigarette in the car and questioned those inside, police said. A brief investigation turned up 26 small plastic bags of a substance that field-tested for marijuana, police said.
Cayo was charged with possession of a controlled substance or less than 4 ounces of marijuana, police said. He was released on a promise to appear in court on March 31.
Police have stepped up patrols near the hookah lounge because the area is known for narcotics violations and criminal activities after hours, police said.
