Right on red leads to drug infraction

A Darien police officer stopped a Gray Forge Edge for making a right on red from Ledge Road on to Post Road, disobeying posted signage.

The driver, Darien resident Guido Rodriguez, told police that he had not seen the signs. During the stop, the officer detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Rodriguez allegedly admitted to having smoked earlier but claimed to not have any marijuana in the vehicle.

At this point, the officer explained that he was accompanied by canine officer Zulu, and that the dog would perform a free air sniff of the vehicle. According to police, Rodriguez admitted to having marijuana in the car with him, and a search uncovered a small black container with less than half an ounce of the substance.

It was taken back to police headquarters to be destroyed, and Rodriguez was given an infraction for possession and a verbal warning for the traffic violation.
