WESTPORT, Conn. — A Westport man was arrested after officers saw him preparing suspected cocaine on his kitchen table and snorting it on Christmas Eve, police said.
Andrew Kindt, 40, of Kings Highway South, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, tampering with evidence and risk of injury to a child, as there were two juveniles in the home at the time, police said.
