Investigators seized 110 illegal weapons, including a rocket launcher and two functional pipe bombs and several pounds of drugs, and indicted 39 members or associates of Florida white supremacist gangs, the U.S. attorney’s office said Thursday.
Those indicted range in age from 24 to 48 and were facing various charges, including possessing firearms and pipe bombs and possession and distribution of heroin and meth, WTSP reported.
“You know, these are one of those very proud moments we have," Pasco County Sheriff Chris told WFTS. “It’s scary when you look over that table and you see those guns and they are in the hands of felons."
