UPDATE: Police Seize Over 300 Guns from Rockford Home - MyStateLine.com
(Rockford) -- More than 300 firearms were removed from this home on Auburn Street. It's a scene residents say they aren't accustomed too.
Coley Woods lives across the street from the home. He says, "I'm thinking it's an accident or something, but I look over and I see them with all them rifles."
"It's just un-real to see this many guns involved a regular residential neighborhood," says concerned resident McArthur Tennin.
Police were called to this home just after two this morning. They arrived after neighbors called about a burglary. When police got inside the home, they found empty shell casings and a variety of weapons, from shotguns to rifles.
Deputy Police Chief Greg Lindmark says, "some were loaded, some weren't some appear to be operable because they're old and then some to be fairly new."
Police say a 67 year-old man owns the home and the weapons. He is a legally registered gun owner.
"At the current time we're taking the firearms for safe keeping as evidence until we can further investigate this," says Deputy Chief Lindmark.
Neighbors say even though the weapons may be legal, they still pose a security threat to their neighborhood.
Woods' says, "Even if he's a registered gun owner or not, that just seems like its too many rifles."
Shortly after police arrived, the home was condemned and the guns were only part of it.
Deputy Chief Lindmark says, "When the police got to this residence they found a tremendous amount of garbage and different items stacked from the floor to the ceiling."
Police will run checks on all of the weapons to see if any were stolen or involved in any crimes.
As of late Wednesday afternoon, police haven't charged the homeowner. Police say he's out of town and they're still trying to get in contact with him. Police also haven't made any arrests in the burglary.
