Failure to display a front license plate on his car is why Milford resident Robert Baker got pulled over in Westport on Thursday night, but that's not why he was later arrested.
Police say that after Baker, 55, was stopped, the officer smelled marijuana coming from inside the car. A search of the car turned up a smoking pipe made out of tinfoil and a plastic bag containing marijuana residue.
Baker was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance. He is scheduled to appear in court April 4.
Also from the police blotter:
Westport resident Stephanie Caicedo of 21 Lincoln St. turned herself in to Westport police Thursday morning after learning there was a warrant out for her arrest. Police say the warrant stemmed from a November 2009 arrest in which Caicedo, 19, was charged with possession of marijuana and failing to appear in court. She was charged with second-degree failure to appear and is due in court April 4.
Norwalk resident Martin Silvestro, who is in police custody on other charges, was served an arrest warrant by Westport police Thursday morning while at Norwalk court. Police say the warrant stemmed from a February incident in which Silvestro, 27, is suspected of stealing a wallet from inside a car.
