A Philadelphia man is facing gun and drug charges after police responded to a report of an unresponsive individual at the Super 8 Motel in West Springfield.
Maurice Nelson is accused of possessing an unlicensed gun with a defaced serial number, possession of cocaine and marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of heroin.
Police say they responded to the motel at around 12:30 p.m. Monday and were ignored by Nelson as they tried to make contact with them.
Officers reportedly were able to gain entry through an unlocked window and say Nelson was sitting on a bed in reach of a loaded gun.
