On May 23, 2017 the Plainfield Police Department was called for an issue on Prospect Street in the area of Allen Street. While on scene, a 1999 green Ford Explorer was witnessed by the Officers making a left hand turn off of Allen Street onto Prospect Street going the wrong way.
As Officers maneuvered to make the traffic stop the Explorer had turned around and pulled back onto Allen Street where the traffic stop was conducted. Officers made contact with the operator who was identified as Jeffery Chambers, 56, of 48 Risley Road, Glastonbury. Chambers was asked where he was attempting to go and he said he was not familiar with the area and that he was taking his passenger, who was identified as Roland McCrary, 49, of 887 Asylum Avenue, Hartford to a friend’s house.
It was discovered while speaking with Chambers that his was vehicle was currently unregistered and was using a registration plate belonging to another vehicle. While speaking to Chambers the odor of marijuana was detected and when asked about the odor, McCrary said he had marijuana on him.
McCrary was asked to exit the vehicle and asked where the marijuana was. McCrary explained he had “cuffed” the marijuana in his anus. McCrary was asked if he had anything further on him which he denied but it was discovered while speaking with him further that he was attempting to conceal crack cocaine in the back of his mouth. McCrary had attempted to swallow the crack cocaine but was unable to get through the baggie and he also retrieved the marijuana.
Chambers was issued a motor vehicle summons for Driving the Wrong Way on a One way, Operating an Unregistered Motor Vehicle, and Improper Use of a Marker Plate.
McCrary was taken into custody and charged with Possession of Narcotics, Possession of Marijuana, and Interfering with Police. McCrary was given a court date of June 5, 2017 at Danielson Superior Court.
