    NEW HAVEN POLICE QUICKLY RESPOND TO SUSPICIOUS VEHICLE WHERE THEY ARREST TWO MEN WITH FIREARMS AND A PIPE BOMB

    (10/7/2009) NEW HAVEN- Shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday, New Haven Police Officers responded to an anonymous call about two suspicious men in a silver Mercedes-Benz parked on Clinton Avenue in the City’s Fair Haven neighborhood. When the two officers approached the vehicle they found 27-year-old Jessup Bollinger of New Haven and 38-year-old John Iannucci of Branford in possession of several firearms, what appeared to be a pipe bomb, ammunition and other related materials.

    The two individuals were arrested and charged with: manufacture of bombs, shotgun/rifle/muzzle loader in vehicle, illegal possession of explosive and storage/transportation/use of explosive agents. Bollinger was additionally charged with criminal possession of a firearm.

    “Our officers did an excellent job handling this incident,” said Assistant Chief of Police Ken Gillespie. “This is a great example of the importance of residents communicating with police about things that look suspicious and the swift and thoughtful response of our Officers.”

    Both suspects were held on $500,000 bond.
