Four children were located, according to police, but they were all sleeping. Police say it’s likely the sound came from a dog in the residence.

Police did a walk-through of the home and located a firearm and “various types and quantities of ammunition nearby,” according to police.

They also found more firearms, firearm parts, ammunition, body armour, knives, and machetes in the home, as well as information on modifying firearms to be fully automatic, and information on making explosives.
