A Brick man is in some trouble after a firearms suppressor, otherwise known as a "silencer", was delivered to his home.

Brick Police Detectives from their Street Crimes Unit along with agents from Homeland Security Investigations executed a search warrant at the Conway Towers Housing Complex located at 165 Chambers Bridge Road.

Their investigation began when detectives received information that a package was being shipped to an address in Brick which contained a firearms suppressor.

A search of the residence found the package containing the firearms suppressor as well as additional types of firearms suppressors and a large amount of counterfeit U.S. currency.

The U.S. Secret Service was then notified in regard to the counterfeit money.

As a result of the investigation, Lawrence Turbett, 71, Brick was charged with four counts of Possession of a Prohibited Device and was transported to the Ocean County Jail.
