Suspect With A Gun Arrested --Still Wearing Ankle Bracelet From Prior Case

In March 2019 Aleczander Liriano allegedly shot a female on Lansing Place near Dickinson Street during an armed robbery. Liriano fled to North Carolina where he was captured by U.S. Marshal’s six months later. After he was indicted for the shooting and released on bail in July of this year with the condition that he wear a GPS bracelet.

On Tuesday night Springfield Police Officers observed a car speeding in the area of William Street in the South End. The car had been reported stolen as well. Officers conducted a traffic stop on Main Street. The driver, Aleczander Liriano was detained and officers located a loaded firearm in his pocket. Mr. Liriano also had cocaine in his possession.

“We need to look at who is being considered for these ankle bracelets. I do not agree that violent offenders should be given that luxury, it should be for non-violent first time offenders,” said Springfield Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood.

Mayor Domenic Sarno stated, “In this case I appreciate the work the Judges and District Attorney’s office did to keep this individual off streets for several months, but violent repeat offenders should not be a candidate for GPS bracelets. Time and time again we see that being outfitted with a GPS bracelet does not deter a violent repeat offender from committing crimes. “

Liriano has been booked on gun and drug charges. He was also the subject of a default warrant in an unrelated case. There has been no word from the arraignment session yet.
