Kingston police had been conducting an investigation into Charles Santos, 34, for multiple days. He is prohibited from possessing firearms “based on his history,” police said in a Facebook post. 

The investigation centered on allegations that Santos was in possession of a gun, gun parts, ammunition, and that he was allegedly using a 3D printer to make more weapons. 

Police executed a search warrant late Saturday afternoon at his home on Howland’s Lane in Kingston. They found a fully operational AR-style rifle, multiple “firearms accessories,” a 3D printer, 3D printed gun parts, body armor, and steroids, police said. Police said other evidence was also found, but they did not provide details.

Santos was charged with unlawful possession of a large capacity firearm, possessing ammunition without FID Card, and possessing a Class E drug. An investigation remains ongoing, and he was set to be arraigned in Plymouth District Court on Monday.
