Darien Men Caught With Pot in Seat Belt Check

A routine stop at a seat belt checkpoint led to the arrest of two Darien men on charges of selling marijuana last Tuesday. Michael Juterbock and Tyler Curtis, both 23, were driving on Old Kings Highway North when they entered the checkpoint. An officer noted that neither was wearing a seat belt, and as he started writing a ticket, he detected the strong odor of marijuana.

Juterbock, the driver, said there might be some in the car, and Curtis admitted he had a bag in his waistband. The bag contained 7.6 grams of marijuana. Searching the car, police also found a digital scale and a jar containing 11 individually wrapped bags of marijuana, packaged for sale. Police found 20.9 grams total in the car. Both were arrested. Juterbock posted $900 bond. Curtis was held on $10,000 bond but was later released on a promise to appear after a bond commissioner arrived and reduced the bond. Both will go to court June 10.

Also from the police blotter:

• A Stamford man was robbed of $138 in cash he left in the locker room at the Darien YMCA on Wednesday. The man arrived at 10:15 a.m. and left his clothes and wallet in an unlocked locker in the men's locker room while he was in the YMCA. He returned 40 minutes later, got dressed and went to go buy coffee but noticed that his cash was missing.
