PORTLAND, Ore. - Six firearms, including a double-barreled shotgun, methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine and ammunition were seized from a 17-year-old Portland boy, police said.

Police discovered all the items after responding to a disturbance at the boy’s house in North Portland on Sunday. The boy was apparently arguing with his mother about one of his firearms, according to a police spokesman.

Police said they are investigating how the teenager obtained the guns, but believe the firearms were stolen.

After searching the home in the 9500 block of Northe Fiske Avenue, officers arrested the 17-year-old on suspicion of six counts of unlawful possession of a firearm, four counts of first-degree theft, distribution and possession of marijuana and methamphetamine and possession of cocaine.

In addition to the double-barreled shotgun, police said they recovered a pistol-grip shotun, a 9-mm Mac-10 and three .45-caliber handguns.
