A Valparaiso man was arrested Friday on a charge of violating a protective order, the Indiana State Police said.

According to police, at 9 a.m. ISP detectives responded to the residence of Donald Furscik, 41, of 398 Greendale Drive, after a warrant was issued charging him with violation of a protective order, a condition of which was that Furscik--a licensed federal firearms dealer--is not allowed to possess or purchase firearms.

A search of Furscik’s residence resulted in the discovery of firearms, ammunition, and blasting ordnance, the ISP said. The Porter County Sheriff’s Police Bomb Squad was dispatched to the residence, and it was later found that the blasting ordnance were inert, the ISP noted. “There was no danger to the public at any time.”

Furscik was subsequently taken into custody without incident following a traffic stop in the area of U.S. Highway 6 and McCool Road.

Furscik was transported to Porter County Jail.

Assisting the ISP were the PCSP, Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, and Grissom U.S. Airforce Base Explosive Ordnance Disposal, the ISP said.
