Police probing death in LA find 1,200 guns, 2 tons ammo
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Police investigating the death of a Los Angeles man uncovered an arsenal inside his home -- more than 1,200 guns and about two tons of ammunition. The Los Angeles Times reports Monday that authorities were startled by the cache of pistols, shotguns and rifles. Some were wrapped in boxes, with price tags attached. Police made the discovery after the man's decomposing body was found in a car down the street from his home in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood. There were no signs of foul play. Police have found no evidence the man -- who has not been identified -- was involved in criminal activity. Detectives want to find out why he had so many guns and are examining the weapons to determine if they have been linked to any crime.
