NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) — New Castle County police say they have seized 31 firearms, 10,000 rounds of ammunition and marijuana at the home of a convicted felon.

Twenty-five-year-old Thomas Mottinger has been charged with numerous weapons and drug offenses. He is being held on $540,000 cash bail.

Police went to a home early Sunday for a report of a domestic dispute. Police did not find anyone arguing, but the front door of the home was open and officers found the firearms and other contraband throughout the residence.

Police persuaded Mottinger to turn himself at police headquarters.
