Alabama police raided a home and found a pile of weapons, including a flame thrower, and drugs.

Birmingham police said their vice and narcotics agents started an investigation after people tipped them off to suspected drug activity at a house on Danbury Circle.

The raid led to the collection of half a dozen assault rifles, six pistols, four rifles and two shotguns along with a sound suppressor. In addition, the agents confiscated a flame thrower.

Police said they found more than 2,000 Xanax pills, 3 kilograms of marijuana and a number of other drugs including edibles containing THC and mushrooms.

Agents arrested Weston Stidham, 36, and charged him with drug trafficking and possession of controlled substances.
