By Bill Parry

The NYPD discovered a cache of weapons as they executed a search warrant in Jamaica early Wednesday morning.

Vladimir Ulysse, 39, was arrested and arraigned Thursday morning on multiple drug possession and weapons charges after officers from the NYPD’s Queens South Narcotics and Police Service Area 9 raided his home at 179-26 143rd Road near Farmers Boulevard and the Belt Parkway around 5:30 a.m., police said.

Investigators hauled away 14 pounds of marijuana valued at $30,000, 11 grams of crack cocaine, 33 grams of Ecstasy and more than $6,000 in cash, and a scale.

Police also recovered an arsenal that included a .357-caliber revolver and seven semi-automatic pistols, according to the NYPD. Two of the weapons had serial numbers scratched off, according to the Queens DA’s office.

Ulysse is being held on $100,000 cash or bond and his next court date is Jan. 30.
