Only in Stamford

I still read the [Stamford Advocate]( to keep up with the comings and goings of my old hometown.

This is [one for the record books](,0,116109.story?coll=stam-news-local-headlines):

> STAMFORD — Police said a 21-year-old Stamford man placed a $1,500 stash of marijuana under a rock outside police headquarters Thursday morning prior to an appearance in nearby state Superior Court.

>When Daniel Garcia of 985 Shippan Ave. returned two hours later, all he found was a note reading: “You’re under arrest. Look up at the police station,” according to Lt. Jon Fontneau, commander of the department’s narcotics and organized crime division.

>Two police officers watching from inside headquarters then went out and placed Garcia under arrest, Fontneau said.

The quote from the guy’s dad is priceless:

> “I know my son has done some bad things,” Armando Garcia said, “but I did not train him to be this dumb.”
