Woman charged after BB gun found in purse
Shana Inabinet, 23, 235 Seton Road, Stamford, was arrested Dec. 27 on charges of having a weapon in a motor vehicle.
A Darien police officer traveling east on Post Road near Old Kings Highway South at 11:30 p.m. saw a car stopped at the flashing yellow light and a man urinating in the middle of the road behind the car, according to the report.
He then saw a second man walk to the driver's side and attempt to get in the vehicle, police said. When the officer approached the vehicle he smelled burnt marijuana, according to police.
While searching the vehicle for marijuana, the officer saw a black, shiny object in a handbag on the back seat, which was identified as a Walther CP99 compact BB gun, police said. The handbag belonged to Inabinet, but she claimed the gun was not hers, according to the report.
She was released on a promise to appear and is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 7.
