A shopping trip to Eastern Mountain Sports, 1939 Black Rock Turnpike, led to charges Thursday against two men after an employee noticed one of them left a handgun in a fitting room, police said.
Todd Gregorio had been in the fitting room and left to get another pair of pants, police said. A store employee noticed the handgun, which police said was loaded, and called 911.
While investigating, police discovered that Gregorio's companion, Robert Testa, was wanted in New Hampshire.
Gregorio, 48, of Plattsville Road, Trumbull, was charged with second-degree reckless endangerment and failure to keep narcotics in the their original container for four oxycodone pills he had in his possession. He was released on a promise to appear Dec. 21 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
Testa, 39, of Robinwood Lane, Trumbull, was charged with being a fugitive from justice and held on a $250,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear Dec. 27 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
