Police Seize 4.7 Pounds of Marijuana, Arrest Two

A Westport police officer’s routine motor vehicle stop today led to the seizure of approximately 4.7 pounds of marijuana and the arrest of two local men.

Officer Marc Heinmiller pulled over a car for an equipment violation at about 1:23 p.m. and detected an odor of marijuana from the vehicle, said Captain Sam Arciola.

Heinmiller, a member of the department’s K9 unit, deployed Public Safety Dog Lola whose sense of smell led police to a box containing three large bags of marijuana weighing approximately 4.7 pounds, Arciola said.

Arrested during the incident were Adam Purcell, 25, of Westport who was charged with possession of more than four ounces of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, and possession of narcotics.

Woodcock Lane and Newtown Turnpike Stop Sign Approved

WestportNow.com Image
At the request of area residents and against the recommendation of Westport police, the Board of Selectmen acting as the Traffic Authority on Wednesday by a vote of 3-0 approved installation of a stop sign on the southbound side of Newtown Turnpike at the intersection of Woodcock Lane. Residents said a blind spot obscures their view of oncoming traffic as they exit Woodcock Lane and there have been accidents and near-misses. Police Chief Al Fiore said a stop sign is likely to cause rear-end accidents at the intersection and that improving the sight line is preferable. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
