Manchester man arrested on weapons charges offered plea deal


MERIDEN — A Manches-ter man who eluded city police for months and led Meriden officers on multiple pursuits was offered a plea deal in court Friday.

Daniel Oslander, 26, of 424 W. Middle Turnpike, was charged late last year with unlawful discharge of a firearm, risk of injury to a minor, criminal possession of a firearm, first-degree reckless endangerment, assault, unlawful restraint, evading and engaging police in pursuit.

Oslander is being held in lieu of $635,500 in bail. The state attorney’s office offered a plea deal Friday but the details were not revealed and the case was continued until April 7.

According to police reports, officers were tipped off by an informant last year that Oslander was keeping weapons in his room at a Meriden hotel.

Police tried for several months to apprehend Oslander. In one incident he rammed the vehicle he was driving into a police cruiser and fled, police said. In another incident, Oslander assaulted his former girlfriend, according to police.

Police tracked Oslander’s cellphone to Meriden in December. Another car pursuit began and Oslander slammed his car into a police cruiser before he was taken into custody. Police said he was carrying a loaded handgun. Oslander was also found to be storing a large military style shotgun, a rifle with a cut off handle and several handguns, police said.
