GREENWICH, Conn. (WTNH) — Police have arrested three people after finding drugs in a car during a traffic stop.

Just after 2 a.m. Saturday, Connecticut State Police pulled over a car with New Hampshire registration for speeding on I-95 southbound in Greenwich. Troopers say there were three men in the car: 20-year-old Tyreese Arnelle Little, 24-year-old Miguel A. Quinones, and 28-year-old Jesus Joel Torres, all of New Haven.

Troopers say they saw several indicators of criminal activity and searched the vehicle. In the center console, they found a “cookie,” which later tested positive for crack cocaine.
