Police arrested a New Jersey man after finding an arsenal of assault weapons, ammunition and Nazi paraphernalia inside his vehicle and home.
Joseph Rubino, 57, of Lafayette Township, was driving a van in the northern area of the state on July 24 when he lost control, ran off the road and struck a tree, police said. State troopers who responded to the crash observed various firearms and ammunition inside the van, according to a federal complaint.
Police subsequently obtained search warrants for Rubino’s vehicle and home, where they said they discovered a cache of weapons, including multiple semiautomatic rifles and handguns, several high-capacity magazines and a grenade launcher. They said they also found Nazi paraphernalia and approximately 70 grams of methamphetamine.
Rubino was charged Tuesday with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of firearms in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime, and possession of firearms by a convicted felon, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey said in a press release.
Rubino was convicted in 1999 of writing a bad check, the federal complaint states, a felony that makes it illegal for him to posses a firearm.
