The Snohomish County Regional Drug and Gang Task Force recovered several stolen weapons after serving a search warrant June 26, 2014, on a storage unit in Everett.

EVERETT, Wash. - Several stolen weapons were recovered from a storage unit in Everett Thursday night after a raid by the Snohomish County Regional Drug and Gang Task Force.

Investigators said among the stolen weapons was what appeared to be a fully-functional 20 mm anti-tank/sniper rifle.

The raid came after a 38-year-old man was arrested by the task force Thursday on charges of attempted delivery of a controlled substance. 

During the arrest, about a pound of methamphetamine and a half-pound of heroin were seized, along with three handguns, two of which were stolen, and about $40K in cash, according to officers. The man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on $250,000 bail.  

Police said when the task force searched the storage locker in the 3800 block of Smith Avenue Thursday afternoon, it recovered 12 military assault rifles, five of which were confirmed to be stolen, and the anti-tank rifle.
