GARY | A search warrant executed at a Gary apartment this week led to drug charges against a resident and the recovery of two stolen guns, police said.

Howard Haymon, 32, of the 500 block of West Vermilion Place, was arrested Tuesday on charges of possession of marijuana and dealing in marijuana, police said.

The Lake County Drug Task Force executed the search warrant, seizing two .38-caliber handguns and two 9 mm handguns. One .38-caliber handgun and one 9 mm handgun had been reported stolen, police said.

Police also took cash and marijuana into evidence.
