LANSING, Mich. — A Grand Ledge man wanted on federal weapons and drug charges was arrested last week, according to information released Thursday by Lansing police.

Tyrun Williams, 35, was arrested July 28. Police said he was found with 12 guns, parts for additional firearms and more than 200 grams of suspected cocaine.

The original charges stemmed from a Lansing Township arrest, when police said Williams was found with five guns and "several different types of illegal narcotics.

The Capital Area Violent Crime Initiative and Michigan State Police Troopers Secured Cities Partnership team assisted the Lansing Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives with the arrest.

“This is another great example of the type of police work we can accomplish from proactive policing efforts and when agencies work together to address crime and safety,” said interim Lansing Police Chief Ellery Sosebee said in a press release.
