Meriden man faces drug charges


MERIDEN – A city man arrested Wednesday faces felony charges after police say he was found with drugs in his car after being pulled over for talking on a cell phone.

Anthony Spencer, 20, of 27 Randolph Ave., was charged with possession of narcotics, sale of illegal drugs, possession of drugs in a prohibited place and possession of under a half ounce of marijuana.

Sgt. Darrin McKay said narcotics officers were targeting Randolph Avenue after receiving reports of drug dealing. According to police, an officer had witnessed a drug sale at 27 Randolph Ave. a couple of days prior. At about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday detectives saw a car park and a man, later identified as Spencer, exit and walk up to the porch of the house. Spencer seemed nervous, and when officers approached him he got in his car to leave the scene. Officers observed Spencer talking on his cell phone while driving and pulled him over near St. Joseph School.

Officers smelled a strong odor of marijuana inside the car, McKay said. A search of the car using a police dog resulted in the discovery of four individually packaged bags of crack cocaine, totally .8 grams, and a bag of marijuana weighing .4 grams, McKay said.

Spencer was held in lieu of $100,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court July 7th.
