A Connecticut man is facing drug and weapons possession charges after State Police allegedly discovered both in his motorcycle during a traffic stop Saturday in the town of Lee, officials said. Curtis Godfrey, 52, of Winsted, Conn., was stopped while driving on Route 20 just after 5 p.m., State Police said in a statement. A search revealed Godfrey was illegally carrying two canisters of pepper spray, prescription drugs, and a leather belt and wristband, which both had metallic spikes, State Police said. “He had indicators of being in a motorcycle gang called the Connecticut Valley Riders, and other symbols that the trooper recognized as being associated with the Outlaws Motorcycle Club,” said State Police spokesman David Procopio.
