Upper Perk Police arrested a 46-year-old East Greenville man Sunday after they executed a search warrant at his home in the 600 block of Blaker Drive.
Police, working with the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office Drug Task Force, said they searched the home of James R. Clunk Jr. as part of an ongoing drug investigation in the area.
According to court documents, police found and seized an undisclosed amount of marijuana, packaging materials, a digital scale, more than $2,800 in cash, a drug ledger, nine hunting style firearms, consisting of shotguns and rifles, and one automatic weapon, an SKS AK-47, inside Clunk’s home.
Police said they also found a large cache of ammunition next to the guns.
Clunk was prohibited from possessing firearms as a felon. Authorities said he was convicted of a criminal conspiracy to commit burglary charge back in 1986.
In an interview with police, Clunk allegedly confessed to selling marijuana out of his home since 2012. He admitted that the large amount of cash in the home was the proceeds of marijuana sales, according to court documents.
Clunk was charged with possession with the intent to distribute marijuana and the illegal possession of a firearm, felonies, and possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was arraigned March 17 by District Judge James Gallagher, who set bail at $10,000 unsecured.
Authorities said Clunk was unable to post bail and was remanded to Montgomery County Correctional Facility.
He is scheduled to appear in Red Hill District Court March 23 at 11:30 a.m. in front of Judge Catherine Hummel-Fried.
