Three people were arrested after police traced a stolen laptop to their Everett apartment and found a load of drugs and guns, including a handgun stolen from an evidence locker at Chelsea District Court. 

Liban Ali, 21, Jeffrey Sanon, 30, and Malensky Oscar, 21, were arraigned on various charges including possession of a high capacity fire arm, trafficking cocaine and receiving stolen property, the Middlesex district attorney’s office said Sunday.

The .40-caliber Glock gun was found in the trio’s Everett apartment after Winchester police raided the home during their investigation of a stolen laptop that had been traced there through recovery software. The gun was reported stolen from the an evidence locker inside the Chelsea court in 2011.

When police raided the apartment they also allegedly found more than 36 grams of cocaine and packing material, several other guns including a shotgun and the stolen computer.

“The firepower and drugs that were discovered at that home created a potentially lethal combination and a real danger to nearby residents,” said Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan in a statement. “I applaud the teamwork and joint efforts of the Winchester and Everett police departments, whose search for a stolen computer led to an unanticipated and significant seizure of weapons that now no longer pose a threat to the community.”
