WESTFIELD- A Westfield man was arraigned Nov. 20 in Westfield District Court for multiple weapons and drug charges after Massachusetts State Police executed a search warrant with the assistance of the FBI and Westfield Police.
Demetrius Caballero, 24, of 19 Rider Road, Westfield, was arraigned on charges of three counts of possession of a large capacity firearm, possession of ammunition without a Firearms Identification Card, possession of a Class C drug, and possession of a Class D drug.
In a document from Westfield District Court, State Trooper Dane C. Jobst said that Caballero was arrested without incident in his home Thursday morning.
While there, law enforcement discovered an AR-15 style rifle with a loaded 30-round magazine, a Glock-42 sidearm with a loaded magazine, a large quantity of marijuana and various forms of THC products, a bag of illegal psilocybin mushrooms, a scale with calibration weights, a digital scale, assorted packaging that is typically used in the distribution of drugs, packaging and processing equipment, at least $2,000 in cash, and a small ledger book.
Trooper Jobst found that Caballero did not have a license to carry a firearm and was a previously convicted felon in the state of Connecticut for firearms charges.
Caballero is being held on $50,000 cash bail at the Hampden County House of Corrections pending a Dec. 18 pre-trial hearing.
