WESTPORT, Conn. — A Westport man and a Bridgeport woman were arrested after officers found them in a Cricket Lane home with narcotics and drug paraphernalia, Westport police said.
Officers had gone to the home Aug. 10 to assist in the recovery of a vehicle that was taken without the owner’s permission, police said. Once on the scene, they noticed a front door window was shattered and there were pry marks on the door knob, police said.
When contacted by officers, the home owner said the marks were new and said no one should be in the house, although his son, 24-year-old Ian Parker, might have entered the home, police said.
Officers located Parker inside the house and found Marianna Perez, 37, of Norman Street, Bridgeport, hiding in the attic, police said.
Illegal narcotics and drug paraphernalia were seen in plain view, police said.
Police said they determined Parker, who gave the Cricket Lane address as his home, had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court and Perez was violating an active protective order that barred her from being at the Cricket Lane residence.
Perez was arrested and charged with criminal violation of a protective order, possession of narcotics and tampering/fabricating evidence, police said. She was held on $10,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in court Aug. 11, police said.
Parker was charged with failure to appear, possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was held on $500 and is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 22, police said.
