Arrest warrant issued for man connected to weapons and drugs in Hadley storage unit

HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – Police have issued an arrest warrant out for a man they say is connected to a shotgun, rocket launcher and methamphetamine found in a storage unit on Route 9 in Hadley, Monday.

The Hadley Police Department say they have a warrant for the arrest of Mark Kauffman after their investigation at Stuff-It-Storage on 222 Russell Street in Hadley.

“Surprising to me,” said Brian Kearns of Hadley. “I mean it’s not normally something you hear about happening in a small town like Hadley. Just right across the street there happens to be rocket launchers and meth.”

Hadley police added that Kauffman’s last known whereabouts are possibly Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
