    • Watcher55 says:

      Great job BPS? …great job to the person who found it without which it would still be laying there completely undetected!

  2. Kangoocar says:

    Looking for 1 thing….find another..ser endipithy

  4. HMMMMMM says:

    I wonder if someone was looking for missing tourist and found the firearm etc. and called it in? If they did, thank you for being a responsible person.

    • Looking for Leadership says:

      That’s probably exactly what happened.

  5. Raw Onion says:

    I’m sure the neighbourhood weed man is in a panic right now hoping the police don’t find his crop.

  6. Tricks are for kids says:

    Knowing THIS bunch guaranteed this is NOT their whole stash….but thankfully it is a start……

  7. squirt says:

    How dumb, why not set up a sting . A 24 hr surveillance to use in case someone was to go there and pick the weapons up with ammo. I mean how long would it have taken? Not long with these dummies… I mean Its common sense to do that BDA Police… Dang…
    NYPD would’ve set it up perfectly, sit back and relax and wait… BINOCULARS, DOGS, And a road block would’ve worked. Another 5 criminals get away…. Anyway, night night !!!!!

    • They probably had binoocclers watching the people as the people was looking for the tourist. Yippee weapons off the street good work whoever found it

    • Bermuda Man says:

      NYPD? LOL. I think you have them confused with FBI, ATF AND DEA!

      All the NYPD does is write tickets and arrest people for small amounts of drugs. The “stings” are done by detectives..

  8. Think... says:

    hopefully they get some DNA evidence off of the weapon, bullets and anything else that is in the area.

  9. Jay Maloy says:

    Maybe if we were smarter we could have posted someone to watch for who’s coming back to get the cache so we could catch them and take them off the street.

    But I suppose just finding it and patting ourselves on the back for the discovery is enough to let us sleep.

    Out of sight, out of mind.

    @ Squirt. That’s the first thing I thought of when I walked across the scene today. How dumb!!

  11. just a saying, just came True says:

    They were always rumors that the west had the most ammunition. Well I guess the rumors were true.

    • The frightening thought is if,(which they were)smart enough to land “x”amount of guns and ammunition then what stops them from doing it again?(if they don’t already have more)
      So, taking into account the ammo and weapon/s have now been confiscated all should prevent someone running to their “stash” to go shoot and possibly kill someone else too soon…

  12. squirt says:

    @ Jennifer, you know what I mean right? Even if you get the main stash. Why tell the public? Take the main weapons but go back and place dummy bags there or something so that they can be caught going back. And than spread the news….

    Why bang one hooker fast , when you can go there take your time and bang them all…!!!!!!!!!! lmao

  13. No laughing matter says:

    There is a children’s park in the vicinity. Thank God that a very dangerous situation has been averted. Kudos to the ones who found the weapons.

  14. MAKE MY DAY says:

    Found in dense foliage…. Means someone phoned-a-tip-in!!! Whatever works!! Wonder how many more are out there!!

  15. Gemini says:

    What a coincidence if they were looking for the tourist n came across the weapons. I am sorry that he is missing but those guns were meant to be found. GOD works in mysterious ways. I give God thanks.

  16. Big Boss says:

    To those commenting saying that the police should have left them there, those comments are retarded.
    First of all, those guns may have been used in previous shootings, so they may/could be evidence. Leaving them there, to see if someone returns, may/will compromise any current investigations.
    Second of all, I bet that within 5 minutes of the police finding them, the ‘village grapevine’ had spread the news and people were aware of the find. So I don’t believe that they would have come back knowing that the police had found them.
    There are many ways to skin a cat. Lets see what happens in the coming weeks, in relation to this discovery.
