Teen faces drug, alcohol charges
Eric Tortora, 18, of Milford, was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of alcohol by a minor in a motor vehicle around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. An officer driving by the Sky Hookah Lounge, 689 Kings Highway East, noticed a white male slouched down in an SUV. The officer pulled over, approached the vehicle, and observed an open 30-pack of Coors Light. On the right rear of the vehicle, there was a bottle of vodka, as well as a fake ID with Tortora's photo on it, police said. A subsequent search of the vehicle turned up a blunt cigarette and four baggies of marijuana.
Released on a promise to appear in court, Tortora is scheduled to face charges Aug. 5 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
