NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Four people were arrested and an arsenal of weapons was seized during a police raid on a Brooklyn home Thursday morning.

An intelligence seargant learned that guns were stored at 175 Dahill Road in Kensington, authorities said. When police executed a search warrant around 7 a.m., they found a 9-mm rifle, semi-automatic handgun, two revolvers, eight swords, a machete and more than 200 rounds of ammunition, cops said. Investigators also recovered drugs, swords, knives and air pistols, police said.

“I’ve never seen that much stuff in one residence,” Sgt. Jeremy Berson told 1010 WINS. “Some might’ve been collector’s items, some possibly to sell to other people, there was no clear indication what they were going to do with all these weapons in the house.”

Police arrested Bashkim Sylmetaj, 36; Michael Sylmetaj, 42; Adem Sylmetaj, 38; and Zenaida Vaysberg, 32. Authorities listed the home address for all four suspects as 175 Dahill.

They each have been charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana, police said.
