CANTON, Ga. - Local authorities said a convicted felon had dozens of guns stashed throughout his house.
Long time neighbor Marilyn Wallis is still reeling over what police found inside 58-year-old Joseph Poss' home.
Forty-six guns were confiscated, at least eight are believed to be fully automatic assault weapons and they said there were several sawed-off shotguns.
Wallis told Channel 2's Liz Artz they've been neighbors for nearly 10 years and had no idea Poss was convicted of an armed robbery nearly 40 years ago.
Agents don't believe he's committed a crime since. They said an anonymous tip came in that he was trafficking drugs, but when they got to his house they only found the massive gun collection.
Investigators said it's a little odd one person would have that many weapons, and those particular types of guns, several of which were illegal for anyone to own.
Daisy Elrod's biggest worry is for her 7-year-old and all the neighborhood kids who play freely on the street.
