MERIDEN — Police arrested three men on active warrants after a car led them to a home on Forest Avenue Wednesday evening.
Luis Pellot, 21, of 42 Forest Ave., was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, criminal possession of a firearm, criminal possession of ammunition, unlawful discharge of a firearm and breach of peace.
Norberto Pellot Jr., 25, of 42 Forest Ave., was charged with breach of peace and violation of probation. Norberto Pellot Sr., 49, was arrested Wednesday and charged with violation of a protective order.
Around 7:40 p.m. officers saw a vehicle that was reported as being taken without the owner’s permission, police spokesman Lt. John Mennone said. Officers knew the vehicle was associated with people that have outstanding felony firearms warrants, Mennone noted.
Police followed the vehicle to the home on Forest Avenue and saw the people associated with the warrants enter the home, Mennone said. Police spoke with the homeowner and said they knew people were inside the home who had active warrants, and officers saw Luis Pellot sitting on the couch.
Luis Pellot was taken into custody and officers searched the home. Norberto Pellot Jr. was found hiding beneath a pile of clothing in the basement, and Norberto Pellot Sr. was determined to have violated a protective order, Mennone said. Police identified a fourth man, Michael Escobales, and discovered he had an active warrant from New London police for charges including strangulation. Escobales was taken into custody and transferred to New London police, Mennone said.
Luis Pellot was released on $100,000 bond and Norberto Pellot Jr. was released on $2,500 bond. Both men are scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Oct. 30. Norberto Pellot Sr. was released on $5,000 bond and was scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Thursday.
