On Tuesday, Amin Hasan, 44, of Stamford, Connecticut was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Michael P. Shea to 2 years in prison followed by three years of supervised release.
On December 5, 2020, Hasan was arrested by Stamford Police after causing a disturbance at a shopping plaza and a search of a van he rented revealed 13 filled 5-gallon gas cans, two hatchets, an ax and other items.
The next day, law enforcement searched Hasan’s residence and seized numerous items, including a gas mask, a chainsaw, a “survival-style” knife, two backpacks containing 30 smoke grenades and 44 caltrops (spikes used to puncture vehicle tires), and a loaded Glock 9mm pistol.
Investigators also found a note on Hasan’s bed with instructions to call his cousin in the event of his death.
Days later, Hasan’s car was found parked in Bridgeport and contained an additional 12 filled 5-gallon gas cans, a hatchet, and other items.
Hasan, on May 6, 2022, pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
