STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut attorney accused of failing to report six stolen handguns - including one used to shoot at police - has pleaded not guilty to charges including reckless endangerment.
The Stamford Advocate reports that 72-year-old Ridgely Brown was arrested after police learned his stolen revolver was allegedly used by another man to shoot at a police officer in July.
Authorities learned about the Stanford man’s five other stolen guns, including one that turned up on a suspect in March.
Police say Brown was told in May to report the other missing weapons, but say he waited until July, a day before Stamford Officer Bryan Cooper was shot at.
Brown told police a woman he was involved with stole the guns during visits to his home.
Brown’s attorney declined to comment.
