Manchester police arrested a Commonwealth Boulevard man and charged him with numerous weapons and drug violations after they responded to a domestic violence dispute.

Police went to the house in Pine Lake Park at 5:10 a.m. on May 30 for a dispute between husband and wife.

There they recovered  a black, semi-automatic Intratec AB-10 9mm gun with a high capacity magazine containing 34 rounds in the magazine and miscellaneous 9mm ammunition, Capt. Lisa Parker said.

They also found various amounts of controlled dangerous substances and drug paraphernalia.

Christopher Batrony, 33, was arrested by Patrolman Christopher Walaszek without incident in connection with the drug and weapons offenses, Parker said.

He was charged with one count of fourth degree harassment under the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, one count of certain persons not to possess weapons, one count of possession of large capacity ammunition magazine prohibited, two counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, one count possession of marijuana under 50 grams, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, she said.

A search warrant was executed by Detective Adam Guker and the Manchester Township Police Investigations Bureau, with the assistance of the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department K-9 units on Mr. Batrony’s residence and vehicle, in which additional amounts of controlled dangerous substances were seized, Parker said. 

Batrony was transported to the Ocean County Jail in lieu of $125,000 cash bail set by Honorable Judge Francis Hodgson Jr. Additional charges are pending against Batrony, she said.
