Detectives obtained a search warrant and entered Davis’ home on Thursday morning.

Inside the residence police said they found 12 firearms, including assault rifles and semi-automatic handguns. Approximately 10,000 rounds of ammunition were also located inside the home.

Davis was arrested and booked into the 4th Avenue Jail on several felony charges including misconduct involving weapons.
