On Sunday night, Newtown Police made quite a discovery as they arrested a Danbury man.
Patch.com states that police stopped to investigate a suspicous vehicle at the Hanover Road boat ramp in Newtown, CT. In the car, they discovered 61-year-old Danbury resident, Jose Ernesto Miranda. The police investigation uncovered less than a half of an ounce of marijuana. However, there were a few more items that were of particular interest. Miranda had some weapons in the car.

Miranda came up with the $500 bond. He has a court date in Danbury Superior Court on Oct. 31.
What was he planning on doing with those weapons? It is something that I say to my family all the time, you never know what someone has in their car. When you are thinking about getting angry or approaching someone in a car, think again.
