MERIDEN — A local man faces charges after police say he threatened a Domino’s employee with a gun during a dispute over coupons.
K’vone West, 26, of 28 South Ave., was charged Sunday with criminal possession of a weapon, carrying a pistol without a permit, first-degree threatening, breach of peace, interfering with an officer, violation of a protective order, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a controlled substance.
Police responded to Domino’s, 172 W. Main St., around 7:30 p.m. Witnesses told police that West put his hand on a pistol he was carrying in a red fanny pack while arguing with an employee over coupons for a meal, according to a police report. Security video confirmed the information from witnesses.
West was not found with the fanny pack at the time of his arrest, the report said. Police searched the area and found the fanny pack containing a. 22 caliber revolver loaded with nine rounds. One round had been fired.
Police also found four small plastic baggies, the report said. Police learned that a protective order from a separate incident prohibits West from possessing firearms.
West was released on $100,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on Nov. 23.
