BRIDGEPORT-Police and State Parole officers uncovered a cache of weapons, ammunition and marijuana Wednesday when checking on the status of a parolee at his Capitol Avenue home.

Shannon Calhoun was captured at a nearby residence after he fled from the officers. He is being detained on $200,000 bond while facing several drug and weapons charges.

Authorities found nine guns, including an assault-type pistol with a barrel threaded for a silencer, several high-capacity and drum-style magazines and ammunition. They also uncovered eight pounds of marijuana, $784 in cash and a money counting machine.
