A dispute over a boat led to Kennewick police finding pounds of marijuana and guns in a convicted felon's house, a police official said.
Anthony J. Savino, 27, of Kennewick and Michael Troidlage, 27, of Richland, got into an argument over the boat Wednesday, Sgt. Ken Lattin said. Savino allegedly pulled a gun on Troidlage and “racked the slide.”
Troidlage took a picture of Savino, who is a convicted felon, with the gun in his hand and called police, Lattin said.
Police detained Savino a short time later following a traffic stop.
Kennewick police’s Criminal Apprehension Team searched Savino’s house and found a grow room in his basement and five pounds of packaged marijuana, Lattin said. Police also found a .45-caliber handgun and an assault rifle.
Savino was booked into the Benton County jail. The Benton County Prosecutor’s Office is reviewing the case.
