YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Police serving search warrants Thursday at two different Youngstown homes found 10 guns, including a submachine gun and a sawed-off shotgun, and arrested two people.

About 5:45 p.m. at a south side home in the 3000 block of Hudson Avenue, reports said members of the vice squad and the Community Police Unit found a 9mm handgun, a .22-caliber handgun, a .380-caliber handgun, a .12-gauge shotgun, four scales, second-degree felony-level cocaine and over $3,500 cash.

Arrested on gun and weapons charges was 35-year-old Marchello Stokes. He is expected to be arraigned later Friday in municipal court.

Stokes is also being held on a probation violation on a weapon and drug charge, jail records show.
