Man Failed To Store Gun, Report It Missing, Middletown Police Say

Police say a Rocky Hill man failed to properly store his weapon and also failed to report it missing within 72 hours of losing it.

William K. Garcia, 43, of Cold Spring Road was arrested on a warrant Monday charging him with failure to store a loaded firearm and failure to report a lost assault weapon/firearm, police said.

He also was charged with three counts of risk of injury to a minor because three children had been near the weapon before it disappeared, police said.

Details about the incident, including what kind of gun it was and whether it had been lost or stolen, were not immediately available.
