Man charged for drug crimes after police chase

A man in Connecticut was charged for drug crimes after a short police chase at 9:30 p.m. on Dec. 26. The 27-year-old man was allegedly found to be in possession of several illegal substances as well as an illegal loaded firearm. He was handed several charges including illegal possession of narcotics and sale of illegal drugs.

The man was driving his car in Naugatuck when the incident began. Believing that the man had participated in a drug transaction, a police officer followed the man's black 2019 Mazda CX5 to an entrance ramp on Route 8 North where the man had parked in a travel lane. After the policeman pulled up behind the man's vehicle and told him to exit, the man allegedly got out of his car with a gun in his hand. The accused man then ran into the woods where other police officers and K9 units stopped him.

Police allegedly seized several illegal drugs including suspected crack cocaine, suspected heroin and suspected marijuana. The suspected heroin was purportedly packaged into glassine baggies. Two illegal 9mm magazines were also seized along with a loaded 9mm handgun that was recovered near the Naugatuck River. The accused man allegedly admitted to police that he had thrown the weapon while he was running from police.

A person who is charged for a drug crime may want to refrain from answering any questions until they have legal representation present. Statements that are said to police immediately following an incident like this could be used against the defendant in court. A lawyer may be able to help a defendant in a drug case ensure that they do not make any incriminating statements about things that police do not have evidence to convict them for.
