CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) — A Long Island man accused of drug and weapons charges has been ordered held on $200,000 bond or $100,000 cash bail.

Edward Perkowski was arraigned Friday in First District Court in Central Islip and is due back in court June 21.

His brother, Sean Perkowski, was arraigned on a bench warrant for public urination and ordered to pay a $50 fine.

The two were arrested Thursday when police raided their home in Mount Sinai.

Police said the raid uncovered an arsenal of weapons, ammunition, drugs, cash and instructions on how to make a bomb, as well as neo-Nazi paraphernalia.

Matt Tuohy, an attorney for the brothers, said anything illegal found in the house did not belong to his client Edward Perkowski. Tuohy Perkowski runs "a legitimate military surplus business."
