Police: Wallingford man put fake bomb near South Windsor business


WALLINGFORD — A local man faces charges after police say he placed a fake pipe bomb outside a business in South Windsor.

Timothy Skinner, 35, of 65 Spice Hill Road, was arrested Friday and charged with first-degree breach of peace. He was released on a $2,500 non-surety bond and is due in Manchester court Oct. 3.

Police were called to a business on Brookfield Street where a device resembling a pipe bomb was found, South Windsor Police Sgt. Scott Custer said in a statement.

The Hartford bomb squad responded and inspected the device, Custer said. The fire department and ambulance were on standby during the incident, Custer said.

It was determined the device was an “elaborate prank” by Skinner, Custer said. The arrest warrant was “due to the alarm the device created,” Custer said.
