SWAT teams, local police, a K-9 unit and the state police bomb squad descended on James Patrick Donovan’s residence Friday. The 37-year-old was arrested without incident.

The prosecutor’s office says detectives received information that Donovan was stockpiling and selling assault weapons, ammunition and explosives in his residence.

The prosecutor’s office says a bomb squad is clearing the residence, and a crime scene unit is standing by to process the scene.

Prosecutor Anthony Kearns says law enforcement didn’t want to take any chances with Donovan.

The prosecutor’s office says it’s unclear if Donovan has retained a lawyer.
