NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say a Bronx man has been arrested after an arsenal of dangerous weapons including a grenade launcher and assault rifle were found in his apartment.

Richard Laugel was ordered detained without bail at an initial court appearance Thursday in Manhattan federal court.

Laugel was arrested Wednesday on firearms and narcotics charges. Authorities said investigators from Homeland Security and the New York Police Department found weapons when they executed a search warrant Tuesday.

His lawyer, Troy Smith, spoke positively of his client, saying he was a former Marine.
