A Waltham man was arrested last weekend on a slew of serious drug and weapons charges.
Kamil Messac-Sylvain, 21, of 13 Hartwell St., faces 15 serious charges stemming from police finding cocaine, marijuana and two firearms in his dwelling.
The incident started on Saturday, March 17 when police escorted a woman, who had a restraining order against Messac-Sylvain, to his home to collect her possessions, according to Waltham Police Detective Sgt. Joseph Guigno. It was a pre-arranged meeting under the conditions of the restraining order, which stems from a domestic situation, according to Guigno.
As the woman was collecting her belongings, she noticed a bag containing two firearms and told police, Guigno said. Officers found the guns, which were in violation of the restraining order, and called Waltham detectives to request a search warrant for the home. The restraining order requires Messac-Sylvain to surrender his weapons.
Detectives searched the home and found 26.9 grams of cocaine, 5.5 ounces of marijuana, two firearms, $4,300 cash and a scale, according to Guigno. He identified the guns as Colt .45 caliber pistol and a Davis .380 pistol. Ammunition was also found in the home.
In total, the suspect faces the following charges: three counts of assault and battery on a police officer, one count of resisting arrest, two counts of possession of a firearm without a firearm identification charges, two counts of possession of a firearm without an ID card (subsequent offense), two counts of storing a firearm improperly, one count of receiving stolen property, cocaine trafficking, a drug violation near a school (house is near Stanley Elementary School), violating an abuse prevention order and distribution of a class D drug (subsequent offense).
