Connecticut man wants guns taken by state in son's arrest

A Litchfield man wants his guns back after they were confiscated at his home by state police during his son's arrest on charges of selling marijuana.

Patrick C. Redmond has hired a lawyer and says some guns are his. The guns were ordered destroyed as contraband.

The Republican-American reports that State Police confiscated 16 handguns and long guns last year from Redmond's home in Kent. His son, Patrick S. Redmond, admitted he was selling marijuana from his father's home. Police say he did not have proper paperwork to demonstrate ownership.

The 26-year-old Redmond was given a suspended five-year prison term and three years' probation.

A Litchfield Superior Court judge denied Redmond's request for the guns. He says he won't order them destroyed to give the state Appellate Court time to decide.
