Woonsocket Call - - OBITUARIES/REGION -

PROV­I­DENCE (AP) — Rhode Is­land State Po­lice have ar­rested a Prov­i­dence man they say had hun­dreds of mar­i­juana plants and a gun in his home.

State po­lice ex­e­cuted a search war­rant on the home of 31-year-old An­thony Patti on Fri­day.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors say they found more than 440 mar­i­juana plants, about eight pounds of dried mar­i­juana, and a loaded .22 semi-au­to­matic hand­gun. Po­lice say as a convicted felon, Patti was not al­lowed to pos­sess a gun.

He was ar­raigned Fri­day on sev­eral gun and drug charges and held with­out bail. It could not im­me­di­ately be de­ter­mined if Patti has an at­tor­ney.
