A Bridgeport man was charged as a fugitive from justice on Wednesday after a traffic stop revealed there are two extraditable warrants for him out of Florida, police said.

Police stopped the car that Tristian Amandola, 26, was driving at the intersection of Park and Brooklawn avenues because a DMV check showed the vehicle was uninsured, according to the police report.

The vehicle's owner, a woman who was riding in the passenger seat, could not produce proof of insurance for the vehicle, police said. The officer also discovered that Amandola's license had previously been suspended, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said.

A check for Amandola's name revealed that he is wanted in Alachua County in Florida for allegedly damaging a church or mosque and criminal trespass, resisting arrest, and possession of marijuana and marijuana, according to the report.

In addition to the fugitive from justice charge, Fairfield police charged Amandola for operating a vehicle with a suspended license.

Amandola was held in lieu of a $250,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 5.
