A 22-year-old man wanted on a charge of failure to appear in court on a minor larceny charge was brought to the attention of police when the driver of a car he was in kept hitting a window in a parking lot downtown, according to police.
When officers were called to the scene, they arrested him and found an ecstasy pill on him, police said.
Darien police described what happened with this account, including accusations not proven in court.
At 10:10 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 8, Shawn Osorio of Flax Hill Road in Norwalk was a passenger in a silver Hyundai parked at Dunkin Donuts, near Darien Railroad Station. Someone called police because it seemed suspicious that an occupant of the car was banging on the window.
Officers found the car with the driver and two passengers in it, all of whom identified themselves to police. One of the passengers was Osorio. The driver told police that he banged on the window because he had a brief argument with one of the passengers, but everything had calmed down, and the other occupant of the car agreed.
Police found that Osorio was wanted for not appearing in state Superior Court in Stamford twice — on April 24, 2014 and Nov. 4, 2016. He had been arrested by Darien police on Feb. 24, 2014 on a charge of sixth-degree larceny (the least serious larceny charge), allegedly committed that day, according to the Connecticut Judicial Branch website.
Police arrested Osorio and, when they searched him, they found a single ecstasy pill in his wallet. Ecstasy is also known as MDMA, and a test identified it.
Osorio is charged with drug possession, two counts of failure to appear in court, and the original larceny charge is still on the docket, too.
His bond was set at $10,250, according to the Judicial Branch website, and he posted it. His court date on all charges was scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 18, in state Superior Court in Stamford.
