More than a dozen guns, ammunition and a rocket launcher were taken from a Sacramento home, including some found hidden behind a fake wall.

Sacramento police officers said they made the discovery on Wednesday.

The weapons included an assault rifle, assault pistol, 12-gauge shotgun, 16-gauge shotgun, Tommy gun, handguns, hand grenades, ammunition and a rocket launcher.

Sacramento’s Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit responded to the home to ensure the scene was safe.

The investigation is ongoing, so investigators are not releasing the names of the suspects at this time.
