Officer: Man came to court hiding pot in left sock

Posted: Updated:

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - Authorities say a Connecticut man who told his probation officer he wasn't foolish enough to bring drugs into a courthouse had been hiding 19 bags of pot in his left sock.

Darren Shelley, of Stamford, is scheduled to return Monday to Stamford Superior Court on a charge of possession with intent to sell.

Authorities tell The Advocate the 22-year-old Shelley reeked of marijuana when he met June 9 with his probation officer.

When the officer asked about it, Shelley allegedly said he was "not a fool" and "did not bring drugs into the court."

But the officer says a pat down revealed the bags of pot.

Shelley is being held on $5,000 bond. He faces a possible revocation of his probation on charges of risk of injury to a minor.
