TRUMBULL, Connecticut — Trumbull authorities say they seized explosives and weapons during a raid on a home owned by a retired deputy police chief.
Police told the Connecticut Post (http://bit.ly/1ooPJcY ) they executed a search warrant Wednesday at a home owned by Gary Golas, who retired recently from the Westport department.
Authorities say they arrested 39-year-old Eric Rogers, who was renting the home from Golas. Rogers was charged with six counts of illegal possession of explosives.
Police say they seized six M-1000 fireworks, several rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. Authorities say it appears Rogers legally possessed the rifles, but they're still investigating.
A woman who answered Rogers' home phone Thursday declined comment.
Rogers has a pending case accusing him of assaulting Westport police. His lawyer in that case refused comment Thursday.
