The Cromwell Police Department has arrested a 28-year-old man, who is accused of running a drug factory out of his home, and seized several weapons from that residence.
On Thursday, police executed a warrant at the McDonald Avenue home of Michael P. Marotta around midnight. Using a K-9 unit, police located illegal drugs that were "consistent with the manufacturing and distribution."
Police seized the following items from the home:
332.4 grams of cocaine, which has an estimated street value of $34,000
Drug paraphernalia used for the manufacturing, packaging and transportation of narcotics
Thousands of rounds of ammunition
Marotta was arrested and charged with operating a drug factory, illegal possession, possession with intent to sale, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of less than one-half ounce of marijuana.
He was arraigned in Middlesex Superior Court Friday and scheduled to appear in court again on Jan. 24. Marotta was released on a $250,000 bond.
