A Bridgeport man was charged with use and possession of drug paraphernalia after he was spotted sleeping in a car Thursday night in the Jefferson Street commuter lot.
Police said there were two men sleeping in the car, and the car's owner consented to a search of the car. They found three hypodermic needles that James Marino, 26, admitted using to shoot up heroin and methadone, police said.
There was also a warrant for Marino's arrest out of Derby for violation of probation. He was held on a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear Oct. 20 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
