Man Drove 124 MPH With Drugs In Car: Police

State police say they've arrested a man who was clocked driving 124 mph in a 65 mph-zone on a Connecticut highway with drugs in his car. 

State police say 22-year-old Matthew Milone, of Coventry, tried to elude troopers on Interstate 384 in Manchester around 10:30 a.m. Monday. 

His car was found backed into a snowbank on a side road in Bolton after motorists pointed troopers in the direction of the gray Acura. 

Authorities said Milone was in possession of cocaine and a small quantity of marijuana. He was arrested Monday and charged with drug possession, reckless driving and attempt to elude. He was released after posting a $2,500 bond. 

A phone number listing for Milone could not be found and it was not immediately clear if he is represented by an attorney, according to the Associated Press. 

He is due back in court on March 26.
