BOARDMAN — Township police officers confiscated drugs, weapons and money at a Leighton Avenue home early today.

Sgt. Glenn Riddle of the Boardman Police Department said officers arrested Joseph Moreland, 65 Leighton Ave., on a felonious assault charge for a prior incident involving a Youngstown police officer.

Neighbors said police arrived around 10:15 a.m. with weapons drawn. Riddle said the smell of what appeared to be marijuana was evident when the home's door was opened. He said officers found multiple narcotics - including marijuana and heroin - an assault rifle and handgun along with an undetermined amount of cash.

Neighbors said Moreland had been living in the home for about a month.
