DARIEN, Conn. — A Stamford man was arrested when police pulled him over for driving an unregistered car and found marijuana and cocaine, according to police.

At around 5:47 p.m. on Wednesday, May 31 an officer saw a red Dodge Ram traveling on Boston Post Road with a cracked windshield. A routine DMV records check also showed that the car was unregistered, and the officer pulled it over, police said. The driver was identified as 29-year-old Christopher Wasicki of Stamford, who police say handed over an expired registration and did not have valid insurance ID.

Police said that it also turned out that Wasicki's license was suspended. He was placed under arrest, and when officers told him that they would be conducting a routine inventory of his car before towing it, Wasicki told them that he had "some roaches" in the car, according to police reports.

Police found a glass jar containing what was believed to be marijuana, according to police. The jar contained several burned marijuana cigarettes, commonly referred to as roaches. They also found a plastic straw with a white powdery substance on it, police said.

Police said that when asked about the powdery substance, Wasicki said, "You know, that was from when I used to party." The substances were tested at police headquarters, and tested positive for marijuana and cocaine, according to police.

Wasicki was charged with possession of narcotics, possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana, failure to insure a motor vehicle, operating an unregistered motor vehicle, and operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license. He was released on a $500 bond and will appear in court on June 14.
