‘Prime Suspect’ In Meriden Gas Station Killing Arrested

Meriden Police say the prime suspect in the June 27th killing of a gas station attendant during a robbery has turned himself in. Frankie Resto, 36, surrendered at the 83rd Precinct of the NYPD in Brooklyn, New York late Friday night, said police.

In addition, police say Resto’s status in the investigation has changed from “person of interest” to “prime suspect,” and they have a warrant charging Resto with Felony Murder, Robbery, Criminal Possession of a Firearm, and Second-Degree Larceny in the killing of Ibrahim Ghazal at the EZ Mart Citgo Station on East Main Street.

Efforts are currently under way to extradite Resto back to Connecticut, said police.
