New Haven man facing drug charges after traffic stop in Wallingford


WALLINGFORD — A New Haven man faces charges after police said he was found with marijuana packaged for sale during a traffic stop on Thursday.

Guy Alexander Moore, 25, of 248 Goffe Terrace, New Haven, was charged with possession of marijuana — over half an ounce, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, suspended license and tinted windows.

About 3:43 p.m. Thursday, an officer in the area of South Colony Road near Ward Street saw a vehicle pass with dark tinted windows, according to a police report. The officer stopped the vehicle, which was being driven by Moore, and noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the car, the report said. Moore told the officer there was marijuana in the car, and a police dog was brought to the scene.

The dog found a shoe box in the rear seat with six plastic bags containing 4 grams of marijuana and 11 smaller bags with .8 grams of marijuana, the report said. Police noted the marijuana was packaged for sale, and officers also found natural leaf cigars and wrappers inside the shoe box. Police said the total weight of the marijuana was 33 grams, or just over an ounce.

Moore was taken into custody and later released on $1,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on May 30.
