When Stamford police officers pulled up behind a white Tacoma pickup truck on Tresser Boulevard at 1:44 a.m. Monday, the vehicle raced off, leaving skid marks on the roadway. It was finally stopped in front of the Stamford mall.

The driver, Henry Perez-Cruz, 40, of 73 Lincoln Ave., produced a Washington State driver’s license that turned out to be fraudulent. Officers said he also had the odor of alcohol on his breath.

While police administered three field sobriety tests, all of which Perez-Cruz failed, police dispatch notified the officers that the suspect was wanted on a federal Immigrations and Customs Enforcement warrant as being in the U.S. illegally. His blood alcohol content was later tested and found to be .154 percent.

Perez-Cruz was arrested for illegal operation of a motor vehicle under suspension, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol/drugs and unsafe movement of a motor vehicle.

Due to the federal warrant, Perez-Cruz was arraigned later Monday and held on $5,000 bond.

Also from the police blotter:

Justyna Piorkowski, 18, of 300 Tresser Blvd. was arrested Sunday after the manager of the Abercrombie Kids store at Stamford Town Center Mall, Piorkowski’s former employer, called police to report threatening and obscene phone calls and text messages left on the store’s phone.

When officers went to Piorkowski’s apartment, she admitted making the calls and leaving the text messages. She also threatened to commit suicide.

Police arrested Piorkowski for breach of the peace and making threatening calls. She was taken to Stamford Hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
