“It makes things a little safer out there for citizens and us,” Sergeant Heffernan said. “Those are very dangerous weapons.”

Two of the handguns were 50-caliber Desert Eagle guns, which Sergeant Heffernan said are “very expensive, very dangerous handguns” with a price tag of about $1,500 each. Two other handguns had laser sights.

Sergeant Heffernan said investigators would try to determine whether any of the weapons were reported stolen.
