Police: Danbury Man Arrested With Shotgun and Alleged ‘Murder List’
A Danbury man has been arrested on a number of charges after police say he was armed and in possession of what they call a "murder manifesto."
According to a press release from the Putnam County Sheriff's Department, 31-year-old Nickolai Plastini of Danbury was pulled over after he was allegedly observed driving erratically along Route 301 in Carmel at around 12:40 PM on Monday, March 18.
As Sergeant William Quick approached the car, he reportedly noticed a strong odor of both alcohol and marijuana. Police say an investigation determined that Plastini was intoxicated and in possession of marijuana, but that was the least of it. Further investigation alleges that he was also in possession of a .410 gauge shotgun, .410 gauge ammunition and a notebook that police believe contained a list of people Plastini wanted to kill as well as the reasons for his hatred.
Nickolai Plastini was taken into custody by the Putnam County Sheriff's Department and charged with criminal possession of a weapon, DWI, and possession of marijuana.
Police say people that were allegedly listed in the "Murder Manifesto" were all contacted and made aware of the situation. Plastini is originally from Carmel,NY but now resides in Danbury CT.
He was arraigned in the Town of Patterson Justice Court, on behalf of the Town of Carmel Justice Court, and remanded to the Putnam County Correctional Facility in lieu of $10,000.00 cash-bail/ $20,000.00 bail-bond. Plastini posted bail and is scheduled to be in the Town of Carmel Justice Court on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
