Alfredo Mayo-Landron, 31, of Bennett Street, was arrested early Wednesday morning after police said he was found with oxycodone and cocaine in his possession.
An officer doing a business check at the Fairfield Motor Inn on the Post Road around 2 a.m. Wednesday saw a man and woman leaning into a vehicle in the middle of the parking lot. When the officer got out of his patrol car, the vehicle fled and the woman went into the motel. The man, later identified as Mayo-Landron, went to another car and tried to open its door, but the key would not work, according to the report.
Asked why he was in the lot, police said Mayo-Landron replied that he was going to retrieve his cell phone charger from the car, and that he had left his ID in the motel room. Mayo-Landron allowed the officer to enter the motel room, where the officer saw a rolled up dollar bill, commonly used to snort drugs, on the floor, according to the report. He asked Mayo-Landron if he had anything illegal, and police said that Mayo-Landron handled over a bottle with no label that contained oxycodone.
He was taken into custody, and while being searched at police headquarters, officers said they found a folded $20 bill that held cocaine.
He was charged with possession of narcotics and failure to keep drugs in the original container, and released on a promise to appear July 14 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
