Police hope to link handgun to other crimes

Man arrested in South Turner Street home

Victoria police are checking whether the handgun they found in the home of a 27-year-old Victoria man arrested Thursday was used in crimes they are investigating.

The man, arrested outside his 100-block South Turner St. home on two counts of breaching probation orders, is described as “very well known to police and is viewed as a violent offender” and was in possession of “two large knives and an assortment of drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin.”

Police are keeping him in custody and are  thinking about laying other charges against him.

No name was released.
