   On July 24, 2014, the State Police Central District Major Crime Squad Detectives executed an arrest warrant for accused Brian Mercure (8/04/1961) of 208 Oxford Way Torrington.   Mercure was taken into custody without incident at his place of employment in New Haven.

   On December 4, 2013, The State Police received a complaint requesting a criminal investigation into an email that had been sent to the Republican American Newspaper in which the author purported to be a state official. The email was never sent by the complainant, and was never authorized to be sent by the complainant.

   State Police Major Crime Detectives initiated a criminal investigation and executed a search and seizure warrant at accused Mercure’s residence.  Evidence seized by Detectives and information developed during the criminal investigation caused State Police Detectives to submit an arrest warrant application to Superior Court GA #18. 

   The court issued the arrest warrant and today   Mercure was charged with Criminal Impersonation. The accused was released on a $2,500.00 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday, August 7, 2014 at Bantam Superior Court.
