MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) - Meriden police are mourning the death of a 33-year veteran of the force.

The department tells the Record Journal that 57-year-old Lt. Lawrence Guidobono died on Christmas Day after an illness.

The department did not provide details, but said it would make a statement about the death on Friday.

Guidobono joined the department in 1985 and for a time served as a sniper on the SWAT team.

He became a sergeant in 1997 and was promoted to lieutenant in 2003.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has not released a cause of death, saying they are awaiting final results of an autopsy. Funeral arrangements were incomplete on Thursday.
