A Middletown man is behind bars following the execution of a search warrant of his home that netted drugs, a loaded handgun, and cash.

Shaheed Emery, 37, was taken into custody around 5 a.m. Friday following an extensive investigation by City of Middletown Police Department, assisted by the Orange County Sheriff's Office Special Operations Unit, and the New York State Police into drug trafficking taking place at the residence at 43 Lafayette Avenue, said the Middle Police Department.
