Cyclist Charged After Stop Reveals Drugs



On October 8, 2017 at approximately 8:18 pm an officer on patrol in the 600 block of North Church Street observed an individual operating a bicycle on a sidewalk without lights or reflectors and eventually pull out into the roadway driving in front of an approaching vehicle. The officer then conducted a traffic stop on the cyclist and as they approached, they observed the individual remove items from his pocket and throw them to the ground. The officer located suspected crack cocaine in the items thrown to the ground. Jose Sosof, 38 of Milford, was taken into custody at the scene without incident. Mr. Sosof was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Ride a Bicycle on Sidewalk or Crosswalk Where Prohibited, and Bicycle in Use At Night Shall Be Equipped With a Lamp. Mr. Sosof was presented at the Justice of the Peace Court #7, where bail was set at $500.00 unsecured. Mr. Sosof is scheduled to appear at the Kent County Court of Common Pleas for an arraignment in November.
