A motorist stopped by police near the southbound Exit 2 off-ramp of I-95 because inoperable brake lights and an expired registration on the car he was driving is facing several drug and motor vehicle charges.
According to a Greenwich Police report, Abdias Hernandez, 31, of Miami Gardens, FL, also didn't have a license or identification when police stopped him as he drove what he said was a friend's car on Frontage Road about 2:10 a.m. Oct. 20. He is accused of giving police a fake name and birth date.
When police searched him, a small bag containing a white powder—which later tested positive as cocaine—was found in one of his socks, according to the report.
Hernandez was charged with operating an unregistered motor vehicle, illegal operation of a motor vehicle, turn signal, operating without insurance, interfering with an officer and illegal possession of a narcotic. He was unable to post a $1,000 bond and scheduled to appear Oct. 28 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
