Police: Bridgeport man gives fake name during arrest

Police say a man gave officers a fake name after an arrest for drug possession in Bridgeport.



State troopers say they seized 104 bags of heroin and almost 4 grams of crack cocaine after stopping a car going 96 mph on Route 8 in Shelton. 



According to police, Joshua Smith originally identified himself by a different name during the Monday night incident.



In addition to the drugs, police say they also found a large amount of cash in Smith's car.



Smith will be facing multiple charges in court later this month.
