A 35-year-old New Franklin man is facing charges after authorities executed a search warrant on his properties and found stolen guns, tools and all-terrain vehicles.

Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies received a tip on Monday regarding items Timothy Williams was allegedly hiding at a home in New Franklin. 

Deputies located three ATVs at the residence. All three had unidentifiable VIN numbers. While searching the home investigators found evidence leading them to a second residence on Buddy Street in the same city.

Authorities found stolen tools, firearms and about $6,000 in cash at the residence.

Police also located several ounces of methamphetamine inside.

A nearby storage unit contained two 4x4 sport utility vehicles, a generator and three golf carts.

Williams was charged with trafficking in drugs and receiving stolen property and transported to Summit County Jail.

Deputies are asking anyone with information regarding the stolen property to call the detective bureau at 330-643-5404.
