KINGSTON –– A local man has been arrested following an investigation into illegal gun possession and manufacturing, according to Kingston Police Department.
Detectives arrested Charles Santos, 34, on charges of unlawful possession of a large capacity firearm, possession of ammunition without a Firearm Identification (FID) card, and possession of a Class E drug.
The investigation, which spanned several days, was initiated due to Santos’ prior history, which prohibits him from possessing firearms.
Police alleged that Santos was potentially in possession of a firearm, various firearms parts and ammunition, and may have been using a 3D printer to manufacture firearms.
A search warrant was executed at a residence on Howland’s Lane late this afternoon.
The search found Santos in possession of a fully operational AR-style rifle, various firearms accessories, a 3D printer, 3D printed firearms parts, body armor, Class E substances (steroids), and additional evidence.
The investigation is still ongoing, and Santos is scheduled to be arraigned in Plymouth District Court on Monday.
