Man faces charges of threatening to blow up Bristol City Hall


BRISTOL — A Stamford man is facing charges of threatening to blow up City Hall because he was upset over a blight lien.

Robert Daprile, 51, of Stamford was arrested on Dec. 9 and charged with first-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace.

According to Bristol police, on Dec. 9 about 3:20 p.m. staff at City Hall called police to report the threat. Officers were told Daprile had threatened to blow up City hall during a phone conversation about a lien placed on a property he owns on Rockwell Ave.

The lien was a result of blight issues, police said. The threat included Daprile putting a bomb in the building and blowing it up, police said. Daprile was found at his home in Stamford and he admitted to making the threat, police said.

He was taken into custody and transported to the Bristol police station. He was held on a $40,000 bond and will be arraigned in Bristol Superior Court later this morning.
