SHIRLEY, Mass. (AP) — Massachusetts State Police say a man was arrested after police found dozens of unlicensed firearms stockpiled in his home.

Police say they seized approximately 47 illegal firearms, 44 homemade silencers and around 35,000 rounds of ammunition from the 62-year-old Shirley man’s home. He was arraigned Thursday in Shirley District Court and was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing next week.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan says police seized a number of high-capacity weapons from the home. Ryan says 11 of the found weapons were licensed to a woman, who has not been charged but had her license to carry revoked.

The seized weapons are undergoing further testing and there may be additional charges.
