WALLINGFORD — A local man faces charges after police say he was found to be in possession of heroin, drug paraphernalia and prescription pills.
Michael Gavrish, 55, of 25 N. Plains Highway, Wallingford, was charged with possession of a narcotic, possession of drug paraphernalia and illegally obtaining or supplying prescription drugs.
The charges stem from a Feb. 4 traffic stop on Route 68 near Warehouse Point Road. At about 4:45 p.m. an officer pulled over an unregistered car with plates belonging to another vehicle on it.
The driver, identified as Kurt Kilbourn, 43, of 43 Robindale Drive, Plantsville, was cited for those infractions.
A passenger in the car, identified as Gavrish, was found to be in possession of heroin, drug paraphernalia and a prescription pill without a prescription, according to police.
Gavrish was released on $2,500 bond. He is scheduled to appear at Meriden Superior Court on Feb. 17 for those charges.
Gavrish was arrested last month after police say they found him in possession of nearly 12 grams of crack cocaine, prescription pills and paraphernalia in a commuter parking lot.
Kilbourn was arrested Monday in Meriden after police say he tried to break into an Arlington Street home using a butter knife to cut through a screen door.
