Meriden Mosque Shooter Pleads Guilty to Marijuana Possession

A Meriden, Connecticut man who drunkenly fired shots into a local mosque on the night of the deadly November 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris has admitted to marijuana possession charges. 

Ted Hakey Jr. pleaded guilty to charges of possession with intent to sell on Monday in Connecticut Superior Court. 

Police said Hakey was arrested following a March 1 raid at his home, according to Hartford Courant reports.  

Sgt. Christopher Fry said Meriden officers and federal agents seized more than 163 grams of marijuana from Hakey's residence, along with several rifles, handguns and ammunition. A sandwich bag that police believe contained psychedelic mushrooms was also found. 

Hakey was sentenced to serve six months in prison for the mosque shooting in June and will turn himself in to begin serving time on Monday. 

After firing shots into the mosque, Hakey apologized to members of the mosque.
