The Associated Press and NBC New York reported today that police investigating a house (on Narrow Lane in Woodmere— shown above) for marijuana found a weapons arsenal comprised of guns, grenades and bomb-making material.
Police officers went to the home on Narrow Lane in Woodmere after an alarm went off Tuesday afternoon and found Marc Ringel, 53, without identification, according to authorities.
“As soon as he opens the door, the officers are struck by a very pungent smell of marijuana,” said Deputy Inspector Kenneth Lack, of Nassau County Police. “They also see what appears to be a black semi-automatic handgun right inside the door, as well as what appears to be two military-style hand grenades.”
Police took Ringel into custody and evacuated about 20 homes on the block as a precaution while they searched the rest of the home.
During their search, police discovered a massive cache of weapons, including 100 handguns, 20 rifles, 15 pipe bombs, 15 handmade grenades and 50 pounds of bomb-making material, police said.
