Cops: Teen Found Sleeping in Car with Foot-Long Bong

Police alleged to have found additional smoking apparatuses and drug-weighing tools in the vehicle.


A 19-year-old Darien man was arrested early Sunday morning on marijuana charges after a patrol officer allegedly caught the man smoking with a bong, police said Monday.

According to authorities, an officer on patrol in the vicinity of 53 Old Kings Highway spotted a 2001 GMC Sierra parked in a lot there and approached the vehicle.

Darien police said they discovered Conner Cicero, of 11 Crimmins Rd., asleep at the wheel. The officer also allegedly detected the odor of marijuana and could spot in plain view a 12-inch bong on the center console in plain view.

A search of the vehicle allegedly produced four additional smoking devices and a duffel bag on the rear seat that contained a digital scale, grinder and packing materials, police said. Authorities said they allegedly seized a total of approximately 6 grams of marijuana.

After police woke Cicero, he allegedly told authorities he wanted to park near the highway and listen to music.

Cicero was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, possession with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on a written Promise To Appear and given a scheduled court date of January 24, 2012.

There comes a time in most parents' lives when their kids make poor choices--some worse than others. As Rich said, don't generalize. These aren't the first good people to find their names in the paper, and they won't be the last.
