• over a 1,000 rounds of ammunition

• Approximately 150 magazines

• Approximately 50 high capacity magazines

• several items of White Supremacist paraphernalia


The three suspects arrested at the location were 54 year-old Littlerock resident Todd Hunt, 33 year-old Littlerock resident Royce Gresham and 62 year-old Littlerock resident Larry Finnell.

All three suspects were transported and booked at the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station. Hunt was booked on charges of Possession of an Assault weapon with a bail amount of $35,000.
