NJ man arrested with 14 guns and 100,000 rounds of ammunition at home

ROXBURY — A 33-year-old man faces more than two dozen charges after police seized an arsenal and illegal drugs from his home, Morris County District Attorney Robert Carroll said.

Erik Vandevelde, of Landing in Roxbury Township, was arrested June 8 after he was found with more than a dozen firearms, more than 100,000 rounds and 100 high-capacity magazines, Carroll said.

Among those weapons were what prosecutors described as four assault-type firearms, two rifles, two shotguns, two handguns, a revolver, a pistol and two air rifles.

Officers also recovered LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, ketamine and over 6 ounces of marijuana.

The response involved members of the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Vandevelde was charged with 14 counts of second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon, as well as various other illegal weapons and drug charges.
