FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A 24-year-old man was arrested early Friday after he was found with nearly a pound of marijuana packaged for sale near Sky Hookah Lounge, Fairfield police said.
Officers patrolling the area of Kings Highway East and Berwick Avenue at about 2:45 a.m., saw a black Buick with two occupants parked in a nearby lot, police said. As they walked by the car, officers could see one man had marijuana on his lap, according to the police report.
A search of the vehicle turned up 389.5 grams of marijuana packaged for sale and about $2,400 in cash, police said.
Daniel Carmichael, of Woodlawn Avenue, Bridgeport, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, sale of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said.
He was held on $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 2.
Fairfield police said they have stepped up patrols in the area because of “increased late-night activity from Sky-Hookah Lounge.”
