NEW CANAAN — A 20-year-old Norwalk man was charged with possession of marijuana after officers pulled over a vehicle with a shattered windshield.
On Dec. 12 at 7:36 p.m., an officer saw a vehicle traveling on Old Norwalk Road with a shattered windshield. Upon speaking with the occupants, the officer detected the odor of marijuana, police said.
