Two New Canaan teens were among a trio of youths arrested on minor drug charges after an officer spotted their car pulling into and parking there late Saturday night, police said.
Geoffrey Krist, 19, of Valley Road, was cited for possession of less than .5 ounces of marijuana; Dessislava Doytcheva, 19, of Park Street, was cited for possession of less than .5 ounces of marijuana and arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia; and Michael J. DiPietro, 21, of Brewster, NY was cited for possession of less than .5 ounces of marijuana and arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to Sgt. Carol Ogrinc, the department’s public information officer, an officer on patrol saw a vehicle turn into the park from Weed Street around 9:54 p.m., park and its lights dimmed.
The officer approached the car and asked whether the three had any drugs, Ogrinc said.
“They at first said ‘No’ and then [the officer] said there was the K-9 working that night, and when they found the K-9 could respond [to the call], all three handed over what they had,” Ogrinc said.
According to police, Krist handed the officer a metal tin and pack of cigarettes, both of which had marijuana inside, and Doytcheva and DiPietro each a plastic bag with marijuana and small metal smoking pipe.
