An ex-con fisherman from Maine who was stopped for a traffic infraction on I-95 was busted for allegedly being in possession of two semi-automatic pistols, crack cocaine and a small amount of heroin at the Darien rest stop early Sunday afternoon.
According to a press release from state police, troopers patrolling the interstate in Darien at noon spotted a 2012 Hyundai Sonata commit a motor vehicle violation. After the Sonata pulled over at the rest stop, the troopers determined there were possible drugs in the vehicle.
The troopers initiated an investigation and called Stamford police to help by sending a drug-sniffing dog.
With the help of the dog, the troopers found crack cocaine, raw heroin, drug paraphernalia and two handguns. Both occupants of the car, William Page, 29, and Sarah Allen, 27, both of Augusta, Maine, are convicted felons and prohibited from owning firearms, the release said.
Inside the car, police allegedly found a Bersa Thunder .380 caliber handgun as well as a Jennings .22 caliber pistol with eight rounds for the .380 and six rounds for the .22, a property sheet contained in Page’s court file states. Police also found 11.3 grams of crack and 1 gram of suspected heroin.
The two were held in lieu of a $150,000 court appearance bond and charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, criminal possession of a firearm, possession of crack with intent to sell and possession of heroin.
