PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The Providence police said they seized three loaded guns, drugs, and more than $20,000 cash from a man suspected of dealing drugs from his Washington Park apartment.

Juan D. Colon, 31, was charged with seven felonies after police searched his apartment at 28 Homer St. Monday evening.

Narcotics detectives Joe Black and Charles Vieira had been investigating Colon for a month. He was holding a gun when police forced their way in and took him down at gunpoint, according to a police report.

Police seized packages of marijuana, crack cocaine, plus rolls of cash and guns stored in Colon's BMW and Chrysler, the police said.

The Providence police have now seized 126 guns this year, exceeding last year's total of 110 guns.
