A Shelton man was arrested for harassment in the second degree at the Stratford Police Department around 8:30 p.m. Monday, July 27.

Trumbull police said Justin Thompson, 18, was sending pictures with him holding a gun to his brother’s ex-girlfriend.

According to police, the photos were sent through the app Snapchat. The first incident was on June 13, 2015 and was reported to Trumbull police.

Thompson sent more pictures with him holding a gun to the girl two days later — on June 15, 2015, which triggered a warrant for his arrest in Trumbull.

When he was arrested in Stratford on an unrelated charge, Thompson was processed and served the outstanding warrant, police said.

He was held on a $500 bond before being processed and released. He has a court date scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 6.
