WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police say a Connecticut man initially pulled over for speaking on his cell phone while driving and failing to signal was carrying more than a pound of cocaine in his car.
Hydar Husman, of Bloomfield, was stopped Thursday in West Hartford and police say they could smell marijuana when they approached his car.
Police say a search of his vehicle found 1 pound, 2 ounces of cocaine, a quarter ounce of marijuana and more than $2,000 in cash.
The 42-year-old was charged with varying narcotics possession charges, failure to signal a lane change and driving while using a hand held phone.
It was not known if Husman is represented by a lawyer.
Federal court records show he served 12 years in prison for aiding and abetting the importation of more than 500 grams of cocaine.
