WALLINGFORD — A man faces charges after police said he argued with employees at a Route 5 convenience store and threatened to come back with a gun and “shoot someone.” 

Jacob Cuevas, 64, no address listed, was charged Sunday with second-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace. 

Police responded to Food Bag, 326 S. Colony Rd., around 12:30 p.m. Cuevas argued with employees and said he was going to come back and “shoot someone,” according to a police report. 

Cuevas was taken into custody and held on bond. He was arraigned in Meriden Superior Court on Monday. According to statements in court, he has previous convictions for interfering with police, criminal mischief and illegal dumping. The judge released him on a promise to appear and the case was continued to May 9.
