A 35-year-old Weston man was arrested on a host of narcotics charges Monday after Norwalk police discovered him driving on Lexington Avenue in a car without license plates.
Garrison Manne, of 27 Huckleberry Road, was pulled over at about 7:15 p.m. on nearby Martin Luther King Drive, and officers saw that he was also driving his Jeep Grand Cherokee without a seatbelt. They also saw him allegedly try to hide something under the seat and in back.
As officers spoke to him, they also discovered that Manne did not have a driver's license, insurance or vehicle registration.
He also allegedly appeared to act nervously, and after he allowed police to search his vehicle, officers found a glass pipe, 10 small bags of crack cocaine, three Oxycodone pills in the wrong container and $1,800 in cash.
Manne was charged with possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of narcotics near a school, illegal manufacture, distribution or sale of prescription narcotics and failure to wear a seatbelt, failure to display a license plate and failure to carry insurance.
He was released after posting a $15,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Aug. 22.
