HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Hamden police say they have arrested a man after an investigation related to local gang activity.

Along with the New Haven Police Department Shooting Task Force, Hamden Police say that in September 2015, they began investigating local gang violence.

Police say the investigation led them to 22-year-old Curtis Cobb, who they say had been involved in illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. On November 13, 2015, officers executed a search and seizure warrant at Cobb’s Fitch Street apartment where they seized a .38 caliber handgun, three firearm magazines, ammunition, nine tinfoil folds of PCP, and 13.9 grams of marijuana.

Hamden police applied for an arrest warrant for Cobb. On Thursday, Cobb turned himself in to police where he was charged with criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of narcotics, possession of marijuana, and possession with intent to sell.

Cobb is being held on $60,000 bond and is due in court on February 29.
