The Norwalk Hour - - NEWS - By Pat Tom­lin­son

NOR­WALK — A traf­fic stop turned into drug bust for a Nor­walk man on Thurs­day night.

Po­lice said Dim­itry Louis, 26, was driv­ing on New­town Av­enue around 9:30 p.m. when he was pulled over for al­legedly hav­ing an il­le­gal rear mar-ker

Louis claimed he had his pa­per­work in the trunk of the car, ac­cord­ing to po­lice, but when he went to re­trieve it, of­fi­cers said they spot­ted mar­i­juana in plain view in­side the car. A search of Louis and the car re­vealed one ounce of mar­i­juana, cops said.

Louis, who has four prior dru­gre­lated ar­rests, was ar­rested and charged with pos­ses­sion of greater than a half-ounce of mar­i­juana and hav­ing an im­proper rear marker. He was held on a $5,000 bond, and was given a court date of July 23.
