Less than 2 weeks ago, threatening political flyers were posted throughout Church Lane. Today, the Westport Police Department made 2 arrests. They say:
Through a review of surveillance video, detectives obtained footage featuring images of 2 suspects. Both individuals were positively identified.
A juvenile was charged with breach of peace in the 2nd degree via a juvenile referral.
The second suspect was identified as Max Bernegger, age 18, of Westport. An arrest warrant was sought and ultimately granted for Bernegger in connection with this investigation.
This morning, Bernegger turned himself in at police headquarters. He was charged with breach of peace in the 2nd Degree. He posted a $500 bond and was released. He will be arraigned at Norwalk Superior Court on the morning of Tuesday November 17.
