Police raid parolee’s home and uncover illegal handguns

NEW BERLIN – Police raided the home of a parolee in the Village of New Berlin Tuesday and reported finding three illegal hand guns hidden in the residence.

The New Berlin Police Department, assisted by the New York State Department of Parole and the Norwich City Police Department’s K-9 unit, entered the home of Stephen J. Allen at 1 High St. Tuesday afternoon and uncovered three handguns.

New Berlin officer-in-charge Dominick Commesso said the department received a tip from another unidentified agency that guns were being kept in the home.

Police said Allen was previously convicted of fifth degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and was placed on parole until November 2012. A condition of parole made it illegal for him to possess firearms.
