A Glendale man was arrested Thursday after police observed an alleged drug deal and found marijuana, cash and a stolen MAC-10 semi-automatic weapon inside his home.

Sassoun Telimi, 26, was reportedly living in an apartment in the 400 block of Myrtle Street, where detectives were conducting surveillance around noon, according to Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz.

They reportedly saw an alleged drug deal involving Telimi, who they eventually stopped in his vehicle, police said.

Detectives returned to Telimi's apartment on Myrtle and found two pounds of marijuana, about $7,700 in cash, the MAC-10 and an additional handgun.

They also discovered the MAC-10 was reported stolen in Lancaster.

Telimi was taken into custody on suspicion of selling marijuana, weapons charges and receiving stolen property.

He was on probation for carrying a loaded weapon, which he was convicted of last year, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court records.

Telimi was released from custody later that night after posting bail.
