Police: New Milford man arrested for crack possession
NEW MILFORD — A local man is due in court Tuesday after being caught with crack-cocaine last week, police said.
Felix Rios, 36, was charged with possession of a controlled substance following a traffic stop on Bennitt Street last Friday.
Rios was a passenger in a 2002 Nissan Maxima police stopped for unilluminated headlights and taillights.
With the help of K-9 Kira, police found four grams of crack-cocaine in the vehicle.
Police arrested Rios after determining the drugs were his.
Lt. Lawrence Ash said crack-cocaine is not an uncommon substance for New Milford police to catch people with.
Rios was charged with the class A misdemeanor and released after posting $1,000 bond.
He is scheduled for arraignment at Torrington Superior Court on Tuesday.
