A tip from the community led to the seizure of 27 guns from a Sandalwood neighborhood home.
This followed an incident in the neighborhood where police found a grenade and utilized its bomb squad to render it safe.
Police executed a search warrant in the 2400 block of E. Alden Trace Boulevard off of a neighborhood tip. When they arrived at the property, the father of the suspect was asked to open the door several times and refused to do so.
However, the suspect, Joel Miniano, 34, came walking up to the home while the search was being conducted. In Miniano's garage apartment police found 20 handguns, five rifles, two shotguns, a grenade, a bulletproof vest, marijuana, and various ammunition and gun magazines.
Miniano was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to sell.
