MERIDEN — Two teenagers face charges after police said they were reportedly walking with weapons in the Westfield Meriden mall parking lot on Thursday.
Two 17-year-old boys, whose identities were not released under statute due to their age, were each charged with breach of peace. The cases were referred to juvenile court.
Police received reports of two people walking in the Westfield Meriden mall parking lot holding what appeared to be a handgun around 9:30 a.m. One caller reported the weapon had an orange tip, which is a common feature on BB guns or facsimile firearms, said police spokesman Sgt. Darrin McKay.
Officers responded and found the two teenagers, who were cooperative. Officers were unable to locate the reported weapons.
