CHICOPEE — Police arrested a local man Wednesday morning after executing a search warrant that uncovered a firearm and ammunition in his residence, authorities said.

Detectives from the Chicopee Police Department’s Narcotic Division, alongside C3 Center Officers and the Western Mass Gang Unit, conducted the search at around 6:30 a.m. at a residence on 2 Springfield St. The operation followed an investigation suggesting the occupant might be engaged in illegal activities.

The Chicopee Police Department has not released further details about the investigation leading to Green’s arrest, but they have reiterated the importance of firearm safety and proper licensing.

The case remains under investigation.
