SOUTH WINDSOR — A local man was charged Monday after police say he had eight unregistered high-capacity magazines in his possession, according to police.

Police charged 35-year-old Adam Randazzo, of Barbara Road, with eight counts of illegal possession of a high-capacity magazine when he turned himself in at police headquarters around 6 p.m. Monday.

The charges stemmed from a July 2020 investigation.

During that investigation, police said, Wethersfield police obtained a search-and-seizure warrant for Randazzo’s South Windsor home after they say he was identified as a suspect in a shooting.

As officers searched the home, they found eight high-capacity magazines that Randazzo owned and had not registered with the state, according to police.

South Windsor police secured an arrest warrant for Randazzo.

Police said Randazzo was released on a $50,000 bond. He’s scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 24.

Wethersfield police on July 14, 2020, charged Randazzo with use of a machine gun, two counts of illegal possession of weapons in a motor vehicle, criminal possession of a pistol/revolver, obliterated serial number and illegal possession of a large-capacity magazine. He’s next in court on those charged to enter a plea on Feb. 23.

These charges stemmed from an alleged road rage incident, according to the Journal Inquirer.
