Argument at Person-To-Person leads to arrests, weapons charges

Two Stamford residents face charges from Darien Police after one of them argued with a charity on Saturday, Oct. 26.

Darien Police responded to Person-To-Person on a call of a woman causing a disturbance. Police said the woman, Jessica Bocchetta, 31, mentioned having a gun during the argument. She did not have a weapon, and was charged with breach of peace.

While responding to the incident, police discovered that Bocchetta was riding in a vehicle with John Wixson, 44, who was in possession of a small amount of heroin, syringes, burglar tools, three sets of brass knuckles, a stun gun and a BB gun. The burglar tools included a piece of metal used to break into parking meters, police said. Wixson was also in possession of a pair of handcuffs and a couple of masks, police said.

Boccetta was released on a promise to appear in court on Tuesday, Nov. 5. Wixson’s bond was set at $10,000, but the bail commissioner lowered it to a promise to appear in court on Nov. 5. Police charged Wixson with possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, five counts of possession of weapons in a motor vehicle, and possession of burglary tools.
