A Brookline man police were called to check on almost a month ago was arrested last week and charged with illegally possessing a gun.

Nashua police were called to the area of 58 Palm St. on July 21 to check on the well-being of a man sitting in a car. Officers found Bret Cooper, 47, of 134 Old Milford Road, Brookline, and learned he had a 9mm handgun in the car, police said.

After more investigation, detectives learned Cooper is a convicted felon. He was arrested Friday at the Rockingham House of Corrections, where he was being held on unrelated charges, and charged with being a felon in possession of a dangerous weapon, police said.

Cooper refused bail and was arraigned Monday at Nashua District Court, police said.

The Class B felony is punishable by up to seven years in prison plus fines, police said.
