Man Charged With Crack Possession in Westport

WESTPORT, Conn. – A New Haven man was charged with possession of crack cocaine in Westport after he was pulled over for not having a front license plate on his car, police said.

Jeffrey Wright, 48, attracted the attention of police Friday morning for having a severely cracked windshield and no front license plate. When Wright was stopped, the officer saw an open bottle of Heineken beer spilling onto the passenger side floor and smelled alcohol on Wright’s breath, the police report states.

As Wright stepped out of the car, an orange glassine bag containing a white rock, later identified as crack cocaine, was spotted on the driver’s seat, police said. In searching the car, officers found several clear glassine bags containing crack cocaine residue. The car’s cup holder also contained crack residue, police said.

Wright was charged with possession of narcotics and drinking while driving. He was also charged with several motor vehicle violations. Unable to post $500 bond, he was arraigned at Norwalk Superior Court later that morning.
