Police bust mobile ‘drug factory’

A Trumbull man is facing charges after police allegedly caught him with drugs, drug paraphernalia and more than $2,000 cash August 31.

According to reports, a security guard at a Lindeman Drive business waved down a passing police car around 10 p.m. and told the officer that there was a car parked with occupants inside in a back corner of a parking lot.

As the officer approached the car he reported being able to smell marijuana. He also recognized the backseat passenger, Brian Gamarro, 20, of Old Town Road.

After waiting for backup, the officer searched the car and reported finding two sandwich bags of marijuana, three more empty bags and other assorted drug paraphernalia including a scale, more plastic bags and rubber bands, all products typically used in packaging drugs, police said. According to reports, Gamarro also had $2,070 worth of assorted bills in the seat pocket within reach.

The driver, whose name was not released due to his age, had marijuana in the car’s cupholder and $220 in cash in his pocket.

Gamarro was charged with possession with intent to sell marijuana, possession with intent to sell marijuana within 1,500 feet of a school and possession of drug paraphernalia in a drug factory. He was held on $10,000 bond for court the next day. The driver was released into his mother’s custody.
