STAMFORD — Police say they apprehended a Bridgeport man last week in possession of the powerful hallucinogen PCP.

Capt. Richard Conklin said the officers in the Narcotics and Organized Crime squad spotted a man acting suspiciously Friday night after parking his car on Mission Street.

Conklin said officers discovered the driver, Laron Webster, 41, was wanted for not appearing in court for a traffic ticket for driving under suspension and disobeying traffic signals. Conklin said the officers also smelled PCP in the car and found seven baggies of PCP in the center console.

Webster, of Catherine Street, was charged with failure to appear in court, possession of an hallucinogen with intent to sell. He was held in lieu of a $10,000 court appearance bond.
