Police say they pulled his car over on November 24th after he was spotted traveling 81 mph in a 65 mph zone of the highway. Carrero originally gave police a false name, but a trooper who has arrested him on speeding and narcotics charges in the past was able to positively identify him.
The Quality of Life Task Force (Troop D) with the Connecticut State Police say, “indicators of narcotic activity were observed and consent was granted to search Carrero’s vehicle.” After the search, over a half kilogram of a controlled substance and $5,000 cash were seized by police.
