West Springfield Man Arrested in Pot Bust


WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Police say they found 28-year-old Matthew Giaquinto sleeping in his car in the Toyota Oakdale Theatre parking lot when they noticed a strong smell of pot.

Early yesterday morning, just before 2 o’clock, officers found Giaquinto behind the wheel of his Dodge pickup truck at the Cook Hill Road exit of the parking lot.

After waking him up, investigators noticed the strong odor, which led to them searching through Giaquinto’s truck. Over one pound of marijuana, over $1,200 in cash, two dozen grams of hash oil, and various forms of drug paraphernalia were seized. Giaquinto was arrested and now faces several charges, including possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
