(IntelHub) -New Mexico – The Department of Homeland Security has raided the home of a noted gun collector, confiscating hundreds of firearms for what they claim was possible violations of the law.
That’s right, the man didn’t actually violate any laws but that didn’t stop homeland security from raiding him and openly stealing his firearms.
Federal Homeland Security Investigation agents raided the home of Robert Adams, seizing 317 rifles and 548 handguns.
A report by local mainstream news outlet KRQE revealed the details of the raid:
Last week rifles lined the lawn of a northeast Albuquerque home that belonged to Robert Adams. Homeland Security Investigations was also busy loading hundreds of handguns into boxes.
It took federal agents days to log every weapon seized into evidence.
Four search warrants filed Thursday show the HSI investigators seized nearly 900 firearms from Adams’ home. There were 548 handguns and 317 rifles listed in the warrant return inventory.
They also searched his office that day taking 599 pistols and revolvers.
Adams has not been charged with any crimes although Homeland Security said the investigation is not over yet.
Neighbors described Adams as a gun collector and a possible licensed firearms dealer. For their part, Homeland Security admitted he had not broken any laws but that he is still being investigated for gun smuggling and tax evasion.
