John Gonzalez, 19, and Kevin Herrera, 18, blamed the cold weather when police asked them Monday morning why they were sitting in a stolen car at the end of Coventry Place.
A resident reported a suspicious vehicle in the cul-de-sac. When police arrived, the temperature was hovering at about 45 degrees at 8:12 a.m. The teens told police they had been at a party nearby and had left because they felt cold. They didn't know the car was stolen; it was sitting there so they got in.
Police found a glass pipe in the car with the two suspects. Both men were charged with larceny and conspiracy; Herrera was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond for each was set at $10,000.
Also on the police blotter:
"I shot my mommy's hand," a little voice said after calling 911 at 4:37 p.m. Monday. Police responding to Ely Avenue found that everything was fine at the little boy's house. The 5-year-old was unhappy with his mother, who had slapped him on the hand as a disciplinary measure. As a protest, he had called 911. He had meant to say, "My mom shot me in the hand."
Francisco Guerrero, 18, was asked to leave the Norwalk Moose Lodge on Monday night. Or maybe it was Angel Rojas. Police were called because a man was threatening the bouncer. The man identified himself as Angel Rojas, but police found another name for him in their records. Under the name of Francisco Guerrero, the arrested man was charged with threatening, criminal impersonation and breach of peace. Bond was set at $10,000.
