Tinted Windows Leads to Arrest at Stratford Motor Inn

Arrest information provided by the Stratford Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

A 37-year-old Bridgeport woman was charged for possession of Ecstasy after police said they followed the car she was a passenger in because it had illegal tinted windows.

Lisa German was charged with possession of a narcotic substance shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 15.

Stratford police said the arrest happened at the Stratford Motor Inn, "a known location for the usage and sales of narcotics and prostitution," at 2200 Stratford Ave.

Officers said they followed the car into the parking lot of the establishment because it had dark-tinted windows that obstructed the view inside the cabin and failed to display a DMV tint sticker.

A motor vehicle stop and search reportedly found a cigarette pack containing three red-colored pills in the shape of a Superman "S." The pills would later test positive for MDMA, the drug Ecstasy, police said.

Officers searched the vehicle after an open beer bottle was seen in plain view in the center console, they said. The operator of the vehicle was issued an infraction for the windows and a warning for the open container.

German said the driver did not know anything about the pills.

The Bridgeport woman posted $2,500 bond and is due in court Sept. 26.
