SOUTHINGTON â€“ A Southington man was arrested after allegedly rummaging through someone elseâ€™s mail and making threatening statements to her.
Christian Bedard, 43, was arrested by Southington police on March 21 and charged with carrying a dangerous weapon, second-degree breach of peace and simple trespass.
According to Southington police, Bedard went to a home on Surrey Lane. Bedard knocked on the door, went through the residentâ€™s mail that was in the mailbox and then started mumbling threatening statements toward the resident.
The resident captured the incident on a home security camera, police said. Bedard also sent the resident a Facebook message earlier in the day threatening her, police said. It isnâ€™t clear if the suspect knew the resident.
Police said they responded to the residence and located Bedard nearby. He appeared to be intoxicated and was found in possession of a knife, the report indicated.
Bedard is due in Bristol Superior Court on April 18. He remains in custody on $150,000 bond.
