AUBURN — Auburn Police responded to an alarm at an unoccupied commercial building Monday evening, ultimately arresting a Florida man found inside with a defaced firearm.

The initial call came in at about 6:20 p.m. on April 8, when officers discovered an unlocked door and personal belongings of a likely homeless individual.

Despite a thorough search, no one was located inside.

After consulting with property management, officers secured the door.

A second alarm at the same location drew officers back a little over an hour later.

Peering through a window, they spotted a man smoking a cigarette inside.

The man was identified as Christopher Floyd of Coral Springs, Florida.

Visible damage to the previously secured door indicated forced entry.

Floyd admitted to breaking into the building during his interaction with the police.

Upon his arrest and subsequent inventory of his belongings, officers found a black Smith and Wesson semi-automatic .40 caliber handgun with its serial number removed, along with two loaded magazines.

The Worcester District Court arraigned Floyd on several charges, including carrying a firearm without a license, defacing a firearm serial number, possession of ammunition without an FID/LTC, breaking and entering for a misdemeanor, trespass, and destruction of property.

His bail was set at $20,040.

Pending a dangerousness hearing, Floyd was held without bail.
