Deniz Erol, 21, of 32 Brookside Drive, was charged with marijuana possession about 3 a.m. Thursday.
Erol was stopped by an officer at the intersection of Chapman Avenue and Tunxis Hill Cutoff after he was allegedly observed driving with a registration plate that was not illuminated.
Erol turned over a cigarette that tested positive for marijuana, police said. A subsequent pat-down by police reportedly revealed that he also possessed marijuana papers.
Erol was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on a written promise to appear May 9 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
