Meriden Police: Two men face drug charges after traffic stop


MERIDEN — Two local men face drug charges after traffic stop on Butler Street Wednesday.

Carlos Santiago, 19, of 13 Webster St. in Meriden was arrested Nov. 21 and charged with possession of narcotics, possession with intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance, and conspiracy to distribute narcotics. Anthony Brown, 35, of 9 Lori Lane in Wallingford, was also arrested Nov. 21 and charged with possession of narcotics, evading, reckless driving, disobeying signal of an officer, possession with intent to sell and conspiracy to distribute narcotics.

Lt. Sal Nesci, police spokesman, said detectives driving on East Main Street in a marked police cruiser noticed the car in front of them had smoke coming out the windows that smelled of marijuana. The detectives followed the car, pulling it over on Butler Street, Nesci said.

When the detective approached the window, the driver, identified as Brown, disobeyed detectives and sped off, speeding down to the dead end of Butler Street and onto the Hanover Towers property, Nesci said. Detectives cut off the car to bring it to a stop. Once stopped, Brown and the passenger, identified as Santiago were searched, Nesci said. Police found marijuana, crack cocaine and multiple cell phones that were ringing constantly, Nesci said.

Both men were held on $250,000 bond and are due in Meriden Superior Court on Dec. 4.
