May 2, 2019

GREENWICH — A man who allegedly ran from officers, while in possession of 13 grams of cocaine, is facing another round of drug charges, Greenwich police said.

Vincent Tyrone Chambless, 29, of Grace Church Street, Port Chester, N.Y., was pulled over by officers for driving with overly tinted windows on his BMW sedan in December, according to police. An officer smelled the odor of marijuana, giving police probable cause to search the vehicle, police said.

Chambless then allegedly ran from officers on Ritch Avenue during the search but was apprehended a short distance away, police said.

Police obtained a search warrant for the vehicle and found a quantity of pills in the car during the search, authorities said. Chambless was booked on a charge of possession of narcotics Tuesday. He was charged previously in December with operating a drug factory, possession of narcotics with intent to sell and resisting arrest.

Chambless was picked up at a jail in Fishkill, N.Y., where he was held on charges in New York state.

Bail was set at $150,000 in the Greenwich case, and Chambless posted bond to secure his release.
