Bridgeport man charged after attempting to evade the police

Getting arrested can be a frightening experience. You may not understand what is going on or why you are being pursued by the authorities. For this reason, some people in Connecticut attempt to evade arrest. Instead of helping the situation, this usually has negative consequences for the person facing criminal charges.

When law enforcement officials entered the third-floor residence of a 21-year-old man from Bridgeport, he only made matters worse for himself by trying to evade the authorities. He was seen throwing items out of his window into a neighboring yard. One of these items turned out to be stolen .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol. He then jumped from his balcony, only to be pulled onto a second story landing by the police.

The authorities found crack cocaine, a loaded firearm, and cash in the residence. The man now faces a host of charges, including possession of narcotics with intent to sell and possession with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school. Due to the fact that he tried to flee his residence when law enforcement officials had a search warrant, the man has also been charged with destruction of property during search warrant, interfering with police, and tampering with evidence. He also faces firearms charges and theft.

If you have been charges with drug crimes, you are entitled to a criminal defense attorney. Before you accepts any deals or enter a plea, you may want to speak with someone who can inform you of your legal rights. An attorney may be of assistance in this area.
