Brandon police arrested three people on Wednesday after finding several firearms in a residence in the 1400 block of 9th Street.
Police executed a search warrant and found two sawed-off twelve-gauge shotguns, ammunition and a sawed-off .22 calibre rifle.
A 32-year-old Brandon man was arrested outside of the home and faces 16 weapons-related charges, including three counts of having a prohibited firearm.
Police also arrested two women — one of whom was found to have an outstanding warrant for theft, failing to attend court and breaching probation. The 33-year-old was to appear in Brandon court on Thursday.
The second woman arrested was released without charge.
