FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Two Shelton men were arrested by Fairfield police Wednesday after marijuana and narcotics were found in their car during a traffic stop, police said.
Officers stopped the car before the tail and brake lights were not working, police said. During the traffic stop, officers asked whether the driver or passenger was carrying anything illegal in the car, police said.
The driver, 22-year-old David Barone, handed over a marijuana cigar, a grinder and glass pipe to the officer, police said. He was charged with driving without a license, possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Officers also spoke with the passenger, Pren Logu-copi 23, of Shelton, and found that he had four Suboxone Sublinguial films, a Schedule 3 narcotic, in his pants pocket, police said.
Suboxone Sublinguial film is a patch used most commonly for the treatment of opiate addictions. Logu-copi was unable to tell officers the prescribing doctor, police said.
He was charged with possession of a narcotic and failure to keep a narcotic in the original container. He was issued a court date of Jan 27.
No information regarding bonds for either man was available.
