Officers soon secured a search warrant for the residence which resulted in the recovery of 3 Rifles, 2 semi automatic hand guns, 1 revolver, over 100 rounds of ammo, trafficking weight crack cocaine and 1 bullet proof vest.

Sirrocko Landrum, 22, of Mattapan is also charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, and Possession with Intent to Distribute Class B.
