COHASSET, Mass. (AP) - A Cohasset man facing charges in connection with a stockpile of 98 guns is free after a judge decided to not issue bail during a court hearing.

The Patriot Ledger (https://bit.ly/2pJmveX ) reports Robert Stoddard was ordered to turn over any guns he may have to the police and not own a gun while his case continues. He declined to comment while leaving the courtroom Wednesday.

The 65-year-old Stoddard faces charges after police executed a search warrant and found rifles, handguns and shotguns in his home. Stoddard had a gun license, but police say the weapons were improperly stored in violation of state law. Police say they also found grave markers in Stoddard’s home.

Stoddard pleaded not guilty to several charges, including desecration of a grave. His gun license was revoked.
