GAMBRILLS, Md. - Anne Arundel County authorities have charged a 53-year-old Gambrills man after a marijuana growing operation and guns were found in his home.

Police said Monday that detectives executed a search warrant last week at Nicholas Dominick's home on Watts Avenue. Authorities say they found 46 marijuana plants in his backyard, as well as 11 handguns, five shotguns, eight rifles and boxes of ammunition. Police said 10 of the guns were registered.

Dominick has been charged with numerous offenses including possession of marijuana, manufacturing marijuana, and two counts of possession of a gun in a drug trafficking crime. He has been released on a $25,000 bond from the Anne Arundel County Detention Center.

A phone number listed for Dominick was not in service.
