A traffic stop in Westport last Friday night led to the confiscation of nine bags of marijuana, police said.
Nathaniel Profit, 39, of Enfield, was stopped in Westport for driving under a suspended registration. When the officer approached the car, he smelled marijuana coming from inside. When Profit was asked about it, he pulled out a small glassine bag from the armrest, which contained marijuana. A subsequent search of the car turned up nine larger bags filled with marijuana.
Profit was charged with sale of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. His bond was set at $15,000, and he was released on a surety bond. He's scheduled to appear in court June 7.
Also from the police blotter:
Massachusetts resident Kevin Barry was arrested in Westport early Monday after he was seen driving erratically on Post Road East, police said. When Barry, 46, was stopped, the officer smelled alcohol on his breath. He failed field sobriety tests and was charged with operating under the influence and failure to drive in the proper lane. Barry agreed to a breath test, the results of which were 0.153 and 0.156. The legal blood-alcohol limit is 0.08. He was released after paying $500 bond and is due in court June 6.
