NEW BRITAIN â€“ A city man wanted in a New Yearâ€™s Eve domestic violence incident also racked up weapons charges when he was found with a gun, police said.
Patrol officers spotted Daekwan White, 22, of 454 Stanley St., Apt. 2N, driving Wednesday, Capt. Thomas Steck said. â€śThey were aware he had a warrant for a domestic violence incident,â€ť Steck said. But when the officers walked up to his car, they could see he was making â€śfurtive movementsâ€ť and appeared to be trying to get something from the center console of the vehicle, Steck said.
The officers took him out of the car and found a firearm in the vehicle, Steck said. White has a criminal history that bars him from possessing a gun. The weapon had an altered serial number, police said.
White was served with the domestic violence arrest warrant charging him with second-degree breach of peace and third-degree assault. He was then charged with criminal possession of a firearm and altering the serial number on a firearm. He was held on $300,000 bond following his arraignment in New Britain Superior Court Thursday.
