A 57-year-old man had an arsenal of weapons inside his house, including six assault weapons and a loaded .25-caliber handgun, according to East Hampton Town police.
Detectives found 17 guns when they executed a search warrant at Christopher R. Fausett’s house at 21 Wireless Road Friday morning, with the assistance of the East Hampton Townwide Police Emergency Services Unit. Police had received a confidential tip and launched an investigation that led them to obtain a search warrant, according to Detective Sgt. Dan Toia.
Fausett was not at home at the time, but police detained him during a traffic stop in the village, while the search began at the house at 7:50 a.m.
