Four Charged After BB Gun Found in Car

An officer initially pulled the car over because it wasn't registered, according to police.

Four people, including one juvenile, riding in a car with an expired registration ended up in hot water early Sunday morning when an officer found a BB gun in the car.

At about 1:45a.m. Sunday morning Officer Enrique Rivera-Rodriguez of the Hamden Police Department saw a car on Cherry Ann Street with an expired registration, according to police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith. 

Rivera-Rodriguez stopped the car on Sherman Parkway in New Haven, Smith said.

"Investigation led to the search of the vehicle," Smith said in a release Monday. "Officers located what appeared to be a handgun underneath the back seat. Further investigation revealed that the facsimile handgun was in fact a BB gun."

Arrested were Tyron Black, 19, of 270 Wakelee Ave., Ansonia, Kyjai Hill, 20, of 34 Bagley Ave., Hamden, Winston Scott, 23, of 66 Orange St., New Haven and a 17-year-old Ansonia resident.

All charged with weapons in a motor vehicle, carrying a dangerous weapon and conspiracy charges, Smith said. In addition, Black, who was driving the car, was charged with operating without a license and operating an unregistered motor vehicle. 

Black, Hill and Scott are scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Jan. 29. The 17 year-old is scheduled to appear in Juvenile Court in Waterbury the same day.
