LOS ANGELES -- Police found more than 1,200 guns in a Pacific Palisades home after finding the resident's decomposing body in a car parked on the street nearby.
Police went to the home on the afternoon of July 17 after discovering the residents body. The man's identity has not been officially determined yet, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner, but detectives were able to determine his name and got a search warrant to search the home.
In addition to the weapons, they found more than 2 tons of ammunition.
Investigators were trying to determine how the man died and why he had so many weapons.
"It's not a crime to have a large number of weapons so long as they were legal to own and legally obtained," LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith told the Los Angeles Times. "We want to make sure that's the case."
