Darien police charged a Stamford man on Wednesday, Oct. 17, with possession of marijuana, sale of a controlled substance, interfering with an officer, possession of alcohol by a minor, speeding and failure to obey a stop sign.

Police stopped Klayder Huyhua, 20, of Stamford on Hoyt Street at approximately 12:45 a.m. after he was clocked doing 54 in a 25-mph zone by an officer who was running radar near Holmes School and failed to obey a stop sign posted at Hoyt Street and Middlesex Road, according to police.

Police said the officer detected a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle's passenger compartment. During a search of the 2010 Honda Accord, police located a pill bottle containing marijuana in the driver's side door compartment as well as an opened bottle of brandy in the back of the driver's seat, according to police.

Police said Huyhua was asked about his age, to which he responded that he was 21, but that was later determined to be false. During a search of the vehicle's trunk, a sandwich bag containing 1.054 ounces of marijuana was located, according to police.

While at headquarters, police said Huyhua's cell phone was checked and numerous text messages indicative of narcotics sales were found. The cell phone was then seized, according to police.

Huyhua posted a $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, Oct. 29.
