Pawtucket Street Arrest

On Sunday, September 20, 2015, in response to numerous recent shots fired and firearm related calls on the street, the Hartford Shooting Task Force set up surveillance in the area of Pawtucket Street. At approximately 5:20pm, a group of men gathered in front of 3 Pawtucket Street and became involved in a heated dispute. Through investigation and surveillance, investigators believed the individuals were armed and that the dispute would become violent. As a result, members of the Hartford STF were directed in to detain the group. During pat downs for weapons, Detectives located a .40 caliber Glock, in Accused/Lugo's shorts pocket. Then they located a .38 caliber revolver in Accused/Rosario's rear pant pocket. During the investigation Accused/Hampton and Tellado interfered with the arrest and were charged accordingly.

Two Parolees were also taken into custody and immediately remanded by the on scene CT DOC/Parole investigator: Parolee Sterling was involved in the dispute and Parolee Velez was present with Accused Lugo, both were remanded by a Hartford STF assigned DOC/Parole Officer and transported directly to Hartford Correctional Center.
