Police used a warrant to enter a home on Bruce Street where they recovered three of the airsoft guns.

“These type of airsoft guns can be used in crime and they look real so people might not know. That’s the risk to public safety,” Const. Ashley Dietrich said.

“It’s good that they are off the streets.”
