PD: Waterbury man hid pot in daughter’s lunchbox


Using his daughter’s lunchbox as a hiding spot for his pot — That’s what police say landed a Waterbury man in cuffs. 

Troopers busted 24-year-old Edwin Alvarez during a traffic stop on I-84 westbound in Bethel.

He was pulled over for not having a front license plate. 

Alvarez was arrested after troopers opened his kid’s lunchbox and found two ounces of marijuana and a scale.
