A man and a teenager were arrested on July 19, East Hampton Town police said, after a search of a Montauk house turned up an indoor marijuana-growing operation and a stolen handgun.
The identity of the youth was not given by police because he is under 16, but the man, Mark E. Dombrowksi, was named. Police would not say whether the two were related.
Following an investigation by town detectives, a warrant was obtained to search the house on North Fleming Court. Detective Lt. Chris Anderson said this week that there were numerous marijuana plants growing in the house. He said that more than two ounces of dried pot was also found.
Mr. Dombrowski was charged with three misdemeanors: unlawful growing of cannabis, criminal possession of marijuana, and endangering a child.
“No component of our criminal charges against him applies to the sale of marijuana, though this is still being investigated,” Detective Anderson said.
The unnamed youth was arrested on charges of criminal possession of a weapon and possession of stolen property, both misdemeanors. Detective Anderson said that the department was still in the midst of tracing the ownership of the gun, a .40-caliber Glock, but that it appeared to have been taken from an East Hampton residence.
Arraignment for both Mr. Dombrowski and the unnamed youth is scheduled for Aug. 18 in East Hampton Town Justice Court.
Mr. Dombrowski was ticketed in May in an apparent road-rage incident on Montauk Highway in which he illegally passed another vehicle, which ended up on its side in the bushes at the side of the road. He was charged with and ultimately exonerated of a hate-crime assault charge in a similar incident in 2005.
