Southington police issued another arrest for an unattended handgun. Brian Rosadini, 22, of Higganum, was arrested for leaving a handgun in his hotel room on Oct. 21.
On Friday, Oct. 21, at 1:09 p.m., the Days Inn (30 Laning St.) front desk contacted police to report that a guest left a gun in one of the hotel rooms at checkout. The room had been rented by Rosadini.
While cleaning the room, Days Inn staff located a 9 mm handgun secured inside a holster. It was in the night table drawer. The magazine was loaded, but there was no round in the chamber. A records check revealed the handgun was a legally registered to Rosadini, who holds a valid Connecticut pistol permit.
Police contacted Rosadini by phone, and he met them at Southington Police Department headquarters. Rosadini was issued a misdemeanor summons for second degree reckless endangerment. He was released on a $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear at Bristol Superior Court on Oct. 31.
The handgun and the pistol permit were seized by police.
This is the third incident of this sort in town since June. The first involved a handgun that was left in a restaurant bathroom. The second was a handgun that was dropped at Crescent Lake, and this one was the third.
