City police executing a search warrant seized a semi-automatic rifle and arrested a convicted felon who was using a valid driver's license with a fake name, police said.

The Baltimore Police Department's computer crimes division, investigating child pornography, conducted the search Wednesday on a home in the 4900 block of Greencrest Road, in the Frankford neighborhood, about 6:30 p.m., police said. Inside, officers recovered a Hi-Point 9 mm rifle and "various digital media," police said.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said child pornography was not recovered. The investigation is continuing. David Thomas Prymerman, 39, was arrested and will be charged, police said. He initially gave police a valid Maryland driver's license in the name of David Edward Coursey, with a birth date indicating he was 30 years old, police said. Guglielmi said someone inside the home alerted police that he was using a fake identity. Guglielmi said police are investigating how the license was obtained.

A check of electronic court records shows that Prymerman pleaded guilty in 1992 in Baltimore County District Court to concealing a deadly weapon. Someone with the name David Edward Coursey and the same birth date displayed on Prymerman's ID was charged in 2001 with having an assault pistol, pleading guilty and received unsupervised probation before judgment.
