Police: Man Stole Weapons from East Windsor Gun Shop Because He Was Being "Teased" at Work
Jordan Marsh, 26, of South Windsor has mental health issues, according to one family member.
The weekend arrest of a mentally ill man who had been stockpiling weapons has some believing that another potential tragedy akin to the one in Newtown was averted.
Jordan Marsh, 26, whose most recent address was 485 King St. in South Windsor, is facing a litany of charges after allegedly attempting to steal a long rifle from an East Windsor gun store last Saturday.
Marsh, who until recently lived with his father and stepmother, had previously received a two-year suspended sentence after it was discovered in June 2011 that he had stolen 12 firearms from the same gun store, Riverview Sales
IIn 2007, Riverview Sales owner David E. Laguercia notified the federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives that 33 guns were missing from his store, according to a Hartford Courant story. Of those 33 guns, 28 were recovered when police searched the home of Brian H. McClelland, who was a frequent customer of the store and helped out on occasion, the Courant reported.
Carl said that the store’s owners were not aware that the weapons had been taken until they told by police.

Woah, what the hell?! How does one steal not one gun, but over twenty guns? Something isn't adding up at all...... Either this place had lax security, and guns stolen are covered by some kind of insurance or..... I don't know what the other choice can be. Being sold under the table then reported stolen?
