DANBURY — An inmate at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury was charged Wednesday with possession weapons, the Department of Justice said.

A federal grand jury in New Haven returned the indictment charging Julian DeJesus Castillo, 34, of possession of contraband in a federal prison.

The indictment alleges that Castillo was caught with weapons or objects designed or intended to be used as weapons on Feb. 8 at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury.

If he’s convicted, Castillo faces a maximum 5-year prison sentence.

The DOJ did not say what charges initially landed Castillo in the facility.
