TEANECK, N.J. -- A 21-year-old Teaneck driver busted on pot-selling charges had a trove of knives and other weapons, some of them homemade, in his apartment, police said Thursday.

Jose L. Paz was carrying a small amount of marihuana, packaging materials and a digital scale when he was stopped on Tuesday, Police Chief Robert A. Carney said.

Detectives who obtained a warrant found more pot, paraphernalia and another scale in his home -- along with 19 assorted blunt and edged weapons, the chief said.

Altogether they seized nearly two ounces of marijuana, along with the weapons -- which brought charges for both.

Paz was released on a summons, with a first appearance set for next Wednesday in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
