Englewood police, investigating a report of a suspicious vehicle, arrested a man who had drugs in his pocket and a number of weapons in his car.

Police dispatch was called about 6:50 a.m. March 23, reporting there was a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot in the 3000 block of South Broadway.

When officers arrived, they found the suspect vehicle with a 27-year-old man behind the wheel. The officers got permission to search the man for weapons or drugs but, during the search, the man tried to pull away. The officers held the man, completed the search and found the man had black tar heroin in his pocket.

Police then searched the car and found a loaded semi-automatic 9mm pistol, two extra loaded magazines, a machete, two hunting knives and several plastic bags of suspected pre-packaged heroin.

An Arapahoe County Impact Team Detective responded and the man was arrested and taken to the Arapahoe County jail.

He could face charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and, since he had a prior drug conviction, he also could face charges of possession of a weapon by a previous offender.
