A Menlo Park man was arrested Monday at his home on Terminal Avenue for possession and sales of marijuana and committing a felony while armed with a firearm, according to a press release from the Menlo Park Police Department.

The man, 59-year-old Steven Pine, was found to be in possession of "well over" nine pounds of marijuana, a large amount of U.S. currency and a firearm, according to the release.
