NORWALK, Conn. -- A 34-year-old Norwalk man, who had previously been convicted of first-degree robbery and first-degree forgery, was arrested in an early-morning raid on Friday and found with an illegal assault weapon, according to The Hour.
Fatice Tyler was reportedly found with an illegal TEC-9 assault weapon more than a dozen bags of marijuana and ecstasy, allegedly with the intent to sell, when Norwalk police raided his Maple Street apartment.
The assault weapon reportedly had two clips with 30 rounds loaded in them. Those clips are now illegal under Gov. Dannel Malloy's post-Sandy Hook gun legislation.
Tyler's bond was set at $250,000 and he is to appear in court on Monday, March 10, according to the report.
