A Stamford youth was charged Wednesday with attempting to sell a pistol. Due to his age, police would not release his name. The Narcotics Unit got a tip the youth was selling firearms in Greenwich. After police stopped his car, the youth admitted he was planning to sell the gun, but had hidden it in bushes. Police found the .32 caliber pistol where the youth said it would be. He is being held on $75,000 bond and will appear in court on July 21. A passenger in the same car, Daniela Migdalia Peguero, 21, of 95 Liberty St. in Stamford was also arrested on conspiracy charges. Police said her cell phone was used in negotiations to sell the pistol. She is expected in court on July 29.
