A 35-year-old man is facing multiple charges after drug paraphernalia was found in his vehicle on East Dominick Street early Tuesday morning, according to law enforcement officials.
The driver also faked his inspection certificate using a scratch-off lottery ticket, authorities stated.
Police said Corey D. Delahunt, of Parry Street, was pulled over at about 1:18 a.m. for several vehicle violations. Once stopped, police said they found five hypodermic instruments, drug packaging materials, drug scales and an air-powered handgun.
Police said the inspection sticker on the vehicle was also fake. Police said an old lotto ticket had been painted over and then written on with black marker. Delahunt is charged with two counts of second-degree use of drug paraphernalia and one count each of possession of a hypodermic instrument, second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation and false inspection certificate, police said. He is scheduled to appear in City Court.
Authorities added that Delahunt was also turned over to the Sheriff’s Office for an unrelated warrant.
