A man was arrested Wednesday after authorities seized more than 1,000 guns from a home in Holmby Hills, authorities said.
Officials received an anonymous tip about a person illegally manufacturing and selling guns in a home in the 100 block of North Beverly Glen Boulevard, said Officer Mike Lopez, a spokesman with the Los Angeles Police Department.
As part of an ongoing joint investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the LAPD served a search warrant at the home at 4 a.m., he said.
The ATF said in a statement that its agents searched the home after discovering an individual illegally selling firearms “outside the scope of the federal firearm license that the individual possesses.”
Over a thousand guns of various types and ages were found. A second home was searched on North Bunker Hill Avenue in Los Angeles, but apparently nothing found there.

This is a developing story. Not much on it that I’ve seen. Of course, guns are no longer news. We’ve already moved on from the two shootings in Colorado this past week.
