DARIEN, Conn. -- Police found marijuana and a 10-inch hunting knife in the car of a Bridgeport man after he was stopped in Darien last week.

At around 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday, June 14, police stopped a white Honda Civic in the area of Old Kings Highway North and Brookside Road in Darien after it was seen driving without a front license plate. When offices asked the driver, 22-year-old Clive Scott of Bridgeport, he said it had fallen off and he hadn't replaced it, police said.

While they were speaking with Scott, officers detected the odor of marijuana, according to police. When asked about it, Scott produced a small bottle containing marijuana, and a smoking device, police said. Darien Police K-9 Argo searched the car, and found more marijuana, police said.

Police also found a 10-inch fixed-blade hunting knife, which is illegal in Connecticut. The state statute allows for a 4-inch blade, police said.

Scott was charged with having a weapon in a motor vehicle, possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on a $500 bond and will appear in court on June 26.
