LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Detectives for the Calcasieu Parish Combined Anti-Drug Task Force (C.A.T.) found a stash of guns and drugs at a Lake Charles residence on Tuesday, April 18.

During a narcotics investigation at 2723 Hinton Drive, C.A.T. detectives found a Sig Sauer .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun - which the Lake Charles Police Department had reported stolen -  a Glock .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun, a .410 single shot sawed-off shotgun, and a Savage Arms Stevens 12 gauge sawed-off shotgun, according to the C.A.T. 

Both shotgun barrels were shorter than the legal limit, said the C.A.T. 

Detectives also found approximately 941 ecstasy tablets, three bags of synthetic cannabinoids, and one vial of liquid PCP.

Detectives arrested Mark Anthony Washington, a convicted felon with numerous prior felony drug-related arrests, said the C.A.T.

Washington was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with four counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a stolen firearm, possession or dealing in unregistered or illegally-transferred weapons, possession of CDS I with intent to distribute, illegal carrying of a weapon in presence of CDS, possession of marijuana with intent, possession of CDS II, and simple possession of marijuana, according to the C.A.T.

A bond of $102,000 was set for Washington by Judge Clayton Davis.
