BRANDON, S.D. — Police in South Dakota investigating a couple drive-by shootings in Iowa say they found dozens of guns, including fully automatic weapons, and thousands of rounds of ammunition in the home of the suspect.

The Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office says investigators determined the teen suspected of firing at two homes in Lyon and Sioux counties in Iowa last month lived in Brandon.

Sheriff’s Capt. Jason Gearman tells KSFY-TV a search of the teen’s home turned up about 80 guns, including tactical weapons, night vision and infrared optics, along with high-end body armor. Gearman says the weapons had been obtained legally with many purchased in the last three to five months.

Authorities say the teen has been arrested. A woman who lived in the home was arrested on a charge of child endangerment. The case is still under investigation.
