Two tons of ammunition and expensive gun equipment was found in the man’s California home.

Los Angeles police went to the man’s home last week after finding his decomposing body in a car parked down the street from the home.

Inside the home, investigators found more than 1,200 firearms ranging from high-end pistols to shotguns and rifles. Many had never been fired. Some were still wrapped in their boxes, with the price tags still attached.

Along with the firearms, police discovered the mass storage of ammunition.

“Our truck couldn’t carry it all,” LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said. “We had to go back and make another trip.”…

“I heard they had to make a tunnel to get stuff out of the garage,” said Sgt. David Craig of the LAPD’s gang and narcotics division.

Investigators seized the ammunition and will run background checks on the firearms to determine whether they were used in any crimes.

“We don’t think the weapons are illegal; we are taking them for public safety,” Craig said, adding that it was a preemptive step to ensure the ammunition or guns wouldn’t be stolen from the home.
