WESTPORT, Conn. — A 52-year-old Trumbull woman was arrested on weapons charges Tuesday, after Westport officers found her sitting in a car with a gun last month, police said.
Lauren Abriola, of Aspen Lane, was charged with carrying a pistol or revolver without a permit and weapon in a motor vehicle, police said.
She posted $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on May 4.
Around noon on March 24, Westport officers were called to a Lilac Lane address on a report someone rang the doorbell and was gone, police said.
While checking the area, officers noticed Abriola in a parked vehicle and, while speaking to her, found out she had a handgun in the car, police said.
Officers seized the firearm and sought a warrant, as Abriola did not have a carry permit.
She turned herself in at 10 a.m. Tuesday.
