A wanted man was nabbed with cocaine after providing police with a fake ID during a traffic stop.

Lance Dewindt, 28, of Norwalk, was arrested on Thursday, Dec. 20, after a vehicle he was a passenger stopped on Danbury Road for driving over the white painted fog line and for driving 50 mph in a 40 mph zone, said Wilton Police. 

During an investigation, police could smell marijuana and identified the driver as Nicholas Falcone, 28, of Norwalk. When all four occupants were asked to step out of the vehicle, Dewindt, who was in the front seat, told officers that he didn't' have an ID and gave them a fake name and date of birth, police said.

A search of Dewindt revealed his wallet tucked into his sock, and officers found his driver's license as well as a folded $5 bill that was contained a white powder. The powder later tested positive for cocaine. During a check of his real name, police found that he was wanted on a felony drug possession warrant out of the state of Florida, police said.

He was arrested and charged with interfering with an officer and possession of cocaine. He was issued a $5,000 bond, which he paid.

The driver of the vehicle was charged with failure to maintain proper lane and driving too fast. He and other passengers were released.
