A Wilton traffic stop led to drug possession charges for a 39-year-old Norwalk man, according to police.
Wilton Police say the driver of a Porsche Cayenne was observed speeding at 60 mph in a 40 mph zone in the area of Danbury Road and Wilton Hills on Saturday, Nov. 23 around 3:45 p.m.
The driver was further observed crossing over the double-yellow lines as it approached the intersection of Danbury Road and Westport Road, police say.
A traffic stop was initiated, and the driver, identified as Sameh Soliman, 39, of Norwalk, was found to be in possession of a glass vial with its label removed and a hypodermic needle, police say.
