Norwich — Police today arrested a man who they said in January had fooled Wal-Mart store personnel into believing that someone armed with a shotgun was in front of the store and threatening to shoot people.



According to Norwich police, on Jan. 26, Keith J. Mutch, 35, of 1 Tanner Avenue, used a portable Ham radio-type of setup to pretend to transmit the report of an armed man at about 9:21 p.m. Security personnel at the store overheard the report over their two-way radio system and called police.



When they arrived, police determined the report of an armed man was false.



Mutch turned himself in this afternoon on a warrant charging him with second-degree breach of peace, first-degree reckless endangerment, and first-degree falsely reporting an incident.



Mutch was held on a $5,000 cash bond pending arraignment at Norwich Superior Court on Tuesday.



No further arrests are anticipated in this incident
