It doesn't make you smarter

Stratford CT: A man who paused to smoke crack cocaine while being chased on foot was arrested early Sunday on car theft and credit card charges.

Perry Quinton, 45, of Sedgewick Avenue, Stratford, was charged with second-degree larceny, first-degree criminal trover, attempted illegal use of a credit card and two counts of credit card theft.

Quinton abandoned a stolen car he had been driving near the P.T. Barnum public housing complex in Bridgeport, according to police.

Police said he scaled a fence near Captain's Cove Seaport and smoked crack cocaine before he ran through the seaport and stood on a boat.

He smoked more crack before officers pulled him down from the boat by his coat and arrested him, police said. Source.
