Troopers Investigate Collision on I-291 in South Windsor, Two Charged With Weapons Violations

On 03/22/2024 at approximately 2:47 p.m., Troop H – Hartford was advised of a collision on I-291 eastbound in the area of Exit 4 in South Windsor. As Troopers were responding to the scene, Troop H dispatch received reports that two individuals were observed fleeing from the involved vehicle. South Windsor Police and East Hartford Police were contacted and responded to assist with the investigation.

 

Upon arriving at the eastbound Exit 4 off-ramp, Troopers observed an unoccupied Dodge Durango at an uncontrolled final rest position in the left lane, with its front wheels elevated and stuck on a guardrail attenuator.

 

A witness remained on the phone with Troop H dispatchers, providing updated information about the activities and location of the two individuals observed fleeing from the vehicle, one of whom was reported to be carrying a bag. During the investigation, the witness indicated that the two individuals appeared to be looking inside of a dumpster at a gas station located near the Exit ramp.

 

Shortly thereafter, Troop H was advised that Officers from South Windsor and East Hartford had located and detained two males at the gas station, who were identified as:

 

Jamal Clark, DOB: 08/25/2001, and Charles Brown, DOB: 08/08/1997, both of Springfield. Massachusetts.

 

At the gas station, an East Hartford Officer retrieved an "AK" style rifle and a Glock 9mm handgun from inside of the dumpster.

 

A CSP K-9 and an East Hartford K-9 were deployed in the areas where Clark and Brown had been observed and two additional firearms, an M4, 5.56 caliber rifle with a 30-round magazine, and a black Glock .40 caliber handgun with a 24-round magazine were located. Each of the recovered firearms were secured and processed as evidence in this investigation:
