MERIDEN, CT (WFSB) -- Recently, the cities of Meriden and Waterbury announced a partnership with the FBI, created in an effort to combat the uptick in violence being seen in those communities.

This week, those efforts are proving to be successful as Meriden police released information on three recent arrests that stemmed from this operation.

They also said two stolen firearms were taken off the street, and three stolen vehicles were recovered so far.

Unfortunately, I’m sure they have bred, not that they would claim their offspring. Let me guess their defense... dindu dindu dindu
