    Farmington Police responded to 36 Fairview Drive Friday after 130 guns and two grenade-like devices were found inside.

    Police have responded to a vacant home under foreclosure in Farmington after 130 guns, mortar rounds and two possible grenades were found.

    Officials from a bank went to the home at 36 Fairview Drive on Friday because they were foreclosing on it, went inside and found the weapons and ammunition, police said.

    The bank did not want the liability of removing the guns, so it called police. 

    The bomb squad was called in after motar rounds and two grenade-like devices were found in the house.  The bomb squad determined the devices were not dangerous.

    It appears from assessor’s records that a bank based in Florida owns the property.
