2 guns seized by troopers in Milford after threatening complaint
MILFORD — Two guns were seized after troopers responded to a reported threatening incident Friday morning, Connecticut State Police said.
It was nearly 6:30 a.m. on April 3, troopers from Troop G in Bridgeport responded for a report of a disturbance on a passenger bus. Initial reports indicated the disturbance involved a passenger with a gun, state police said.
Troopers found the bus off Exit 40 in Milford.
When the troopers removed the passengers from the bus, one man started to resist troopers “for an unknown reason” as they tried to identify him, police said.
He was issued a misdemeanor summons for interfering with an officer. He was released on a $5,000 bond.
After he was detained, troopers spoke to the complainant, who told officer they were “threatened with a gun” as he got on the bus in New York City, police said.
The troopers quickly identified the suspect — a resident of Springfield, Mass. — and detained him. State police said the troopers searched the area where the Springfield man was sitting and found two guns.
State police did not further identify the Massachusetts resident.
He was taken to Troop G to be charged with possession of the two firearms without a permit.
The man was unable to post his $25,000 bond.
The New York Police Department was informed of the details and the arrest since the initial threatening incident happened in the city.
