Wilton Police arrested an 18 year-old male on Monday, July 2, for possession of various drugs and drug paraphernalia after police were summoned to a private residence regarding a domestic complaint.
Police said a father called the police on his son during an argument; when police came to the house they questioned the son, identified as Patrick Farley, of Old Belden Hill Road in Wilton, if he had any drugs on him. Farley had a backpack on him at the time and in response to police emptied the contents of his backpack without being asked, said Captain John Lynch of the . Among the items spilled from the bag was a brown cardboard box which contained two benzodiazepine pills, “three small white paper bags known to be used to package heroin, with a small amount of tan colored powdery residue, and a syringe with a hypodermic needle,” as well as a misdemeanor’s worth (less than five ounces) of marijuana in another plastic bag, according to the police report.
Wilton Police charged Farley with possession of a controlled substance, possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of less than five ounces of marijuana and disorderly conduct.
Farley was also found to have an outstanding warrant for his arrest issued by the Norwalk Police Department, and was handed over to their custody after processing.
