He was arrested behind the Village Mall on Dec. 20 and has been in custody since.

Police said when he was arrested, they seized small amounts of drugs, including cocaine and marijuana, as well as two sawed-off shotguns, one of which was loaded, in the vehicle.

When the man was arrested, they discovered a third firearm and seized it as well.
