CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — On Monday, the Cambridge Police Department said that they recovered a loaded firearm, more than 260 tablets of suspected methamphetamine and other drugs and made an arrest in connection to a home invasion that happened Saturday morning.
Police said their investigation determined that 19-year-old Ahmed Farsab of Cambridge allegedly broke into a residence on Prospect Street through the window while wielding a loaded gun. Officials said that Farsab allegedly threatened a man inside in hopes of collecting a debt owed by him, the CPD said.
The victim fled the scene, escaped his residence, and called the police from a nearby business, police said.
Officers said they arrived shortly after and obtained a description of the intruder from the victim, and later observed Farsab driving in a vehicle nearby. Police stopped Farsab's vehicle and conducted a search on the teenager and sole occupant of the vehicle at the intersection of Cambridge and Elm Street.
Upon a search of Farsab, police said they found a loaded illegal gun, cash, multiple phones, bags of pills, marijuana, and several stolen identities. Farsab was taken into custody while his vehicle was towed from the scene to be investigated, police said.
During the inspection of Farsab's vehicle, officers said they found more cell phones, ziplock bags and plastic packaging materials, digital scales, methamphetamine, other narcotics, and property stolen from the victim's residence.
