Police Dog Cedar assisted in finding alleged drugs in a car at Walnut Beach Thursday night.

Police arrested a Shelton resident July 31 at Walnut Beach for allegedly having drugs and a scale inside a car.

It was about 7 p.m. in the beach parking lot when police came upon Jan Kamyszek, 21, of Ojibwa Trail in Shelton. According to a police report, members of the Narcotics and Vice Unit observed suspicious activity inside the vehicle. With the help of Police Dog ‘Cedar,’ authorities said they found 103 grams of marijuana, weighing scales and packaging materials in the car. Detectives also seized a large amount of cash from inside the vehicle, according to a police report.

Jan Kamyszek was charged with sale of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, and was held in police custody on a $2,500 bond

    I’m Jan’s girlfriend and I was in the car I don’t think it’s right that his address is in this story and he did not have 103 grams that’s about 3.6 ounces jan may have had 1 ounce also we pulled up to the beach five minutes before officer Broderick walked up on the car with no probable reason we were sitting in the car listening to music and before we knew it Broderick was at our window milford mirror has been given false information and I am disappointed in whoever came forth with the information I am also disappointed in officer Broderick for lying to my stepfather saying that jan had almost a pound of marijuana

      Hey, you shouldn’t do the crime if you’re not ready to do the time…

        My objections aren’t with the punishment that are within the behavior conducted by the task force police officers and the error within this article that make jan look worse than the situation really is.

    Police sniffer dogs require a warrant to be used on private property (Supreme Court ruling in 2013). It appears this was on public property, though. However, no matter how the dog acted, the police needed a warrant to search the car. Too many times drivers/owners of cars “blink” and say “okay” to a search. I’ve never understood why they would do so…….
