Guns, Military Shells Seized From Cohasset Home

COHASSET (CBS) – More than two dozen guns and multiple military grade shells were seized from a home on Doane Street in Cohasset Friday afternoon.

Cohasset Police say members of the bomb squad arrived at the home, assessed the "5 large military grade ordnance shells" and notified the United States Navy to take custody of them.

Police searched the home after they received a credible report that there were "unsecured rifles and shotguns strewn about" the house. The 65-year-old man who lives in the home had a license to possess the guns, but the Cohasset Police Chief revoked it on Friday.

Police say there is no public safety threat and detectives are reviewing the case to see if there is any criminal wrongdoing.
