W.Va. state police find weapons cache

May. 16, 2013 @ 09:35 AM

BELLE, W.Va. (AP) — State police with a search warrant say they found an estimated 100 weapons at a home in Belle.

In an investigation that was still unfolding Wednesday night, media reports say the discovery also included methamphetamine, marijuana and cash.

One officer on the scene said the firearms were found throughout the home — in the attic, beside a bed, and elsewhere.

A man was arrested in connection with the search. He told reporters at the scene he collects guns.

Police said the suspect is a convicted felon and not allowed to possess a gun.
