The Los Angeles Police Department made a shock discovery in the high-profile, celebrity-studded, liberal coastal neighborhood of Pacific Palisades last week: over 1,200 guns and two tons of ammunition in one condominium.
Police searched the home after the owner’s body was found decomposing in a car nearby. He was not, apparently, a victim of crime.
The find represented a “staggering number of guns,” LAPD Commander Andrew Smith told the Los Angeles Times, adding that police had to make several trips with a truck to collect them all.
Police are now investigating whether any of the weapons can be tied to illegal activity–an investigation that will take a “tremendous” amount of time, they say.
