Connecticut State Police have arrested a Bolton man who is accused of being in possession of multiple guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

On Tuesday, state police said specially trained weapon detection K9s were brought to 42-year-old Michael Gramegna's home in Bolton to assist with a search for guns in relation to a search warrant.

The dogs discovered thousands of handgun and rifle rounds, several large-capacity magazines and three long guns, including an assault-type rifle, according to state police.

The specially-trained K9s helped investigators find weapons all around the home.

“Because of the help of our K-9’s we were able to find numerous weapons that were tucked away in various locations in the homes to include the wall cavity of the residence,” Trooper Josue Dorel said.

State police said Gramegna was charged with violating a protective order, which prohibited him from being at the home. He was also charged with operating an unregistered vehicle, operating a vehicle without insurance, operating a vehicle with a suspended license and falsifying a marker plate.

State police and detectives served the search and seizure warrant. Gramegna was held on a $2 million bond.

Police said additional arrests are expected in the case and anyone hiding illegal weapons from these dogs are no match.

“Not for our dogs, thank God,” Dorel said.
