A 53-year-old Gambrills man has been arrested on drug and gun charges after authorities found an alleged marijuana growing operation and guns and ammunition in his home.
Anne Arundel County police said that detectives executed a search warrant Friday at the home of Nicholas V. Dominick in the 500 block of Watts Avenue. They found 46 marijuana plants, 11 handguns, five shotguns, eight rifles — including an AK-47 assault rifle — and boxes of ammunition.
Police said 10 of the guns were registered; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was to investigate the legality of the remaining weapons.
Dominick was charged with a range of offenses including possession of and manufacturing marijuana and two counts of possession of a gun in a drug-trafficking crime. He was also charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana in a school zone because his home is near Arundel High School, police said.
He was released Saturday on $25,000 bond, police said.
