BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — A routine traffic stop turned into the arrest of a wanted New Haven man Monday.
State Police said a car being driven by 28-year-old Jordan Smith was speeding along Interstate 95 southbound near exit 27 in Bridgeport. When Troopers stopped Smith’s car, they discovered crack cocaine and a loaded handgun in the car.
According to State Police, Smith provided a false name and date of birth to them because he had two outstanding warrants for his arrest. Smith, a convicted felon, was arrested on ten different charges, including criminal possession of a firearm, criminal impersonation, and possession of narcotics.
In addition, Smith was in violation of his probation, and failure to appear in court. He was held on a $155,000 bind, and was arraigned in Bridgeport Superior Court Monday afternoon.
