Book The Third: Wallingford police: Stratford man had drugs, sword in car

WALLINGFORD — Police said they found drugs and a sword in a Stratford man’s car today during a traffic stop on North Colony Road near Parker Street. 
Sgt. Joseph Cafasso said police stopped the car, driven by David McCurrey III, 25, at about 1 p.m. because he didn’t have a certification sticker for the tints on his windows. Police found 10 small bags of heroin, 2.5 grams of cocaine and a 24-inch samurai sword in the vehicle, Cafasso said.
Lots of Samurai sword fu going on today.  I'm just going to chalk it up to being too close to a full moon and be done with it.
