Traffic Stop Leads to Torrington Drug Bust
A Middlebury man is under arrest after Torrington police say they found crack, cocaine and heroin in his car. Officers stopped 29-year old Charles Wilkerson because he was driving erratically on Winsted Road.
Wilkerson kept driving, but eventually pulled into a parking lot on Main Street, where police say he gave them a Connecticut Identification card with a Hamden address because he does not possess a drivers license.
Hidden in hollowed out can of “foaming tire protectant” was 25 bags of heroin, 6 bags of crack-cocaine and package of powder cocaine. Police say the drugs had a street value of $1,500. Investigators also found over $2,300 in cash.
Wilkerson was already on parole and is currently being held by Torrington PD ahead of his court appearance.
