Following two months of work by detectives, an Atlantic City man is facing a long list of drug and weapons charges.

On Thursday, the Atlantic City Police Department says they executed search warrants on a home and vehicle on the 2100 block of North Missouri Avenue.

As the target of the investigation, 41-year-old Muhammad Griffin, left the area, detectives conducted a motor vehicle stop and arrested Griffin.

According to authorities, during a search of his vehicle and home, a loaded handgun, cocaine, ecstasy, paraphernalia used in the distribution of narcotics, and cash were seized.
