Police have arrested a Cynthiana man on numerous felony charges including illegal weapons as well as possessing armor-piercing ammunition.

Charles Helton, 54, was arrested Friday night at his Church Street home after Cynthiana police executed a search warrant of the home and garage.

Among the items seized from the home were thousands of dollars in property from his employer TI Automotive Group.

Cpl. Walter Tapp was expected to execute a second search warrant Monday afternoon of a storage building rented to Helton.
