Officers arrested a Norwalk man for possession of marijuana and 17 folds of heroin following a motor vehicle stop, police said today.
Supreme Harmon, 29, was also charged with tampering with evidence upon his arrest Tuesday.
According to Lt. David Farrell, the suspect had concealed inside his body a plastic baggie containing marijuana and folds of heroin.
The incident began Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. after an officer stopped Harmon’s vehicle with darkly tinted windows on Saugatuck Avenue near Ferry Lane, Farrell said.
“The officer was able to smell an odor emanating from the vehicle, which he immediately recognized as marijuana,” Farrell said.
“Harmon denied having narcotics in the vehicle, so K-9 Officer (James) Loomer and police service dog Koda were requested to the scene.”
After Loomer and Koda searched the vehicle, a white glassine fold consistent with packaging for heroin was found on the pavement in the exact same spot where Harmon was standing, Farrell said.
The officers also located a green leafy substance under the passenger seat, which was determined to be marijuana.
“Also located was a clear plastic baggy which Harmon had concealed inside his body,” Farrell said. “Inside the plastic baggy was marijuana and more glassine folds of heroin.”
In total, there were 17 glassine bags weighing 5.6 grams were seized. The marijuana weighed 3.9 grams.
Harmon was released after posting a $10,000 surety bond. He was also issued an infraction for operating a motor vehicle with a permit and not having a proper licensed operator inside the vehicle, Farrell said.
He is scheduled to appear in Norwalk Superior Court on Wednesday, May 17.
