State Police say clocked a Seymour man traveling at 120 miles an hour in a BMW Friday night on Route 25 southbound in Bridgeport.

Police say they pulled over John Connelly, 26, near Exit 5 and found that he was impaired. Connelly was charged with driving under the influence and reckless driving.

Troopers say they found a large amount of prescription pills in a non-prescription container and nearly $5,000 in cash. That resulted in additional charges of possession of narcotics and possession with intent to sell.

Connelly is free on $10,000 bond and due in Bridgeport Superior Court April 12.
