MILL CREEK — A Tacoma man was arrested in Mill Creek on Sunday after police found a stash of weapons, drugs and military grade explosives.

The man, 35, had been evicted in May from a home he shared with his girlfriend at the time and her mother, according to a police affidavit filed Monday in Everett District Court.

The mother called police Sunday after she found the weapons and drugs while she was cleaning out the man’s room.

Police recovered two .22-caliber rifles, a sawed-off shotgun, a knife and more than an ounce of suspected methamphetamine. A bomb squad was called in to take away the explosives.

The man, a convicted felon, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of three counts of unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a short-barrel shotgun and possession with intent to deliver.

A judge ordered him held in lieu of $25,000 bail.
