Police seized two handguns, ammunition and cocaine from the Christy’s Drive apartment.

BROCKTON — A city man was arrested Thursday afternoon when detectives seized two guns, dozens of rounds of ammunition and cocaine from his apartment, police said.

During the month of June, state police detectives assigned to the Plymouth County district attorney’s office conducted an investigation into narcotics distribution in the city.

Police say they identified Brandon Keon Miller as a suspect who was selling cocaine out of a second-floor apartment at 7 Christy’s Drive.

On Wednesday, state police sought and obtained a search warrant for the apartment, which was executed about 1 p.m. on Thursday.

During a search of the apartment, detectives seized a .40-caliber handgun, 9mm handgun, “large amounts of ammunition,” several twists of suspected cocaine, packaging materials consistent with drug distribution and $4,000 in cash, said Beth Stone, a spokeswoman for District Attorney Timothy Cruz.

Detectives also seized a magazine loaded with .45-caliber ammunition, 13 rounds in the .40-caliber gun, 12 rounds in the 9mm firearm and another bag containing numerous rounds of various caliber ammunition, police said.

Miller, 31, was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of a firearm without a firearms identification card, two counts of illegal possession of a large-capacity feeding device and one count of illegal possession of ammunition.

He pleaded not guilty during his arraignment Friday in Brockton District Court. The prosecutor requested $25,000 bail with the conditions that Miller wear a GPS-monitoring bracelet and have a curfew if posted. The judge set bail at $20,000, but declined to impose the additional conditions.

The new Commonwealth Interstate Narcotics Reduction Enforcement Team, state police Gang Unit and Brockton police detectives assisted in executing the warrant on Thursday.
