STAMFORD, Conn. — A Greenwich man who tried to slip away from officers by hiding behind a parked car Tuesday night was found to have a stash of heroin, cocaine and prescription pills in his possession, Stamford Police said.
Schuyler Jacob Goldberg, 28, of 16 Brookside Park, is facing multiple drug charges in connection with the arrest.
Capt. Richard Conklin said members of the department's Narcotics and Organized Crime Unit were patrolling in the area of 909 E. Main St. when they saw several people loitering in the parking lot of the closed Toyota dealership at about 9 p.m.

The officers questioned him and discovered a pill bottle in his pocket, Conklin said. The man told police he had a prescription for it. The bottle was labeled for 30, 1-milligram alprazolam (Xanax) pills, but when officers checked the contents found that it instead 47, 2 milligram alprazolam pills, Conklin said.
Police then searched the man's 2017 Mercedes Benz CLA 45 and discovered 54 glassine folds of heroin, 2.3 grams of powdered cocaine and an additional 38, 2 milligram Xanax pills, Conklin said. Police also recovered $360 in cash.
