WESTPORT, Conn. – A 29-year-old Weston man is facing a felony drug charge in Westport after he was found in possession of heroin and crack cocaine last week, police said.
Ryan Singleton of Lyons Plains Road was pulled over last Wednesday night on a motor vehicle violation, police said. As the officer was approaching the car, Singleton could be seen making suspicious movements inside, the police report said.
After receiving Singleton’s permission to search the car, the officer discovered heroin and crack cocaine, police said. It was later discovered that Singleton gave the officer a fake first name when asked, the report said.
Singleton was charged with possession of narcotics, a felony, and use of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor. He was also charged with interfering with an officer and criminal impersonation, both misdemeanors, and two motor vehicle violations. The motor violations included failure to wear a seat belt and illegal operation of a motor vehicle under suspension.
Singleton was held on $9,500 bond and is scheduled to appear at Norwalk Superior Court on Friday.
