Bathrobe + Shotgun = Arrest

A Hartford man was arrested and charged with carrying a weapon in a vehicle after police found him sleeping in the back seat with a shotgun.

West Hartford officers found Roberson Cardoso, 21, Monday night.

When Cardoso got out of the Jeep he was in, police spotted the shotgun's black barrel sticking out the bottom of his bathrobe, police said.

Cardoso told police he was going to use the gun and two knives they found as props for pictures he wanted to post on MySpace.
