TORRINGTON – A Jeep Cherokee ran a red light at the intersection of Torringford West and East Main Street on Feb. 1. A city police officer pulled the car over, and started talking with the driver, Chad Wiford, 40, homeless in Torrington.
In a report of the incident, the police officer wrote that Wiford’s car smelled like marijuana. The officer asked Wiford if he had any drugs or paraphernalia, and Wiford said he did.
The officer searched Wiford’s car, and in his report, wrote that he found syringes, glass pipes, empty wax paper pouches, and a small wax paper bag filled with a sticky grayish-brown substance, which the officer wrote later tested positive for the presence of heroin.
Wiford was charged with illegal possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, and failure to obey traffic control signals. He was released with a promise to appear Feb. 16 in Torrington Superior Court.
