NORWALK, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man who was caught hiding heroin in a Bible while on parole will spend another six months in jail.

The Hour reports 41-year-old Christopher Hayes, of Norwalk, was sentenced Thursday in Norwalk after pleading guilty to possession of narcotics and possession of narcotics with intent to sell.

Hayes had previously been sentenced to three years in jail followed by three years of special parole in 2013 for multiple convictions including larceny.

Prosecutors say police found cocaine and heroin in Hayes’ possession when they responded to reports of a disturbance in a Norwalk parking lot in July. Prosecutors say more heroin fell out of a Bible that Hayes owned when police shook out the pages of the book.
