At about 2 a.m. on Feb. 4, police officers were dispatched on a report of a vehicle operating erratically and crossing multiple lanes of travel.

The vehicle was observed traveling westbound on Greens Farms Road. It traveled through the intersection with Hillspoint Road without stopping for the stop sign.

A motor vehicle stop was conducted and the operator was identified as Luca Dore, 44, of Shelton, CT, according to police reports.
