After safely entering the home, officers located an illegal assault rifle, an illegal machine gun, three pistols, illegal high capacity ammunition magazines, and laser weapon sights. Approximately 100 marijuana plants and dried marijuana were also found in the home. The investigation is ongoing, but the suspect, a convicted felon, was on scene and immediately arrested.
