A Bridgeport man was arrested following a search of his apartment that turned up multiple weapons and drugs following an investigation by the Statewide Urban Violence Cooperative Crime Control Task Force.

Kareem Porter, 18, was arrested around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, following the search in which detectives seized three 9mm handguns, a Tri-Star, Glock 17 and an FNP. Both the Tri-Star and Glock 17 were determined to be stolen out of Georgia, said Sgt. Eric J Haglund, spokesman for the Connecticut State Police.

Detectives also located 11.1 grams of marijuana, 4.6 grams of crack, 11.2 grams of heroin, 76 ecstasy pills (27.7 grams), a 50 round drum, a high capacity magazine and 44 9mm rounds of ammunition, said Haglund.

Porter was charged with possession of narcotics with intent to sell, stealing a firearm, illegal transfer of a stolen pistol, illegal possession of a large capacity magazine, failure to properly store a loaded firearm and failure to appear.

He is being held on a $400,000 cash/surety bond and is scheduled to appear in Bridgeport court on Wednesday.
