    EAST ENGLEWOOD: A man called deputies Monday night after he found three guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in his 13-year-old daughter's treehouse. Tom O'Connell built the treehouse in the back yard of his Van Loon Avenue home for his daughter."You have to come through here and then this flips up like this. So then you crawl up this ladder and they were laying right here," said O’Connell.What he discovered inside the treehouse Monday night was anything but child's play."I saw a sheet and a bag and I opened the bag up and I looked down and all of a sudden I saw a couple of guns in there," said O’Connell."That is a little girl's playhouse. Why would you put guns up in there?" said Sally Hutton, O’Connell’s girlfriend. That's the mystery the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office is trying to solve. Deputies recovered a pistol, a rifle and a shotgun, along with 343 rounds of .22 caliber rifle ammunition and another bag with 94 9mm bullets. The 9mm pistol was reported stolen December 7, 2007 from a home on Coliseum Boulevard in Port Charlotte. Empty cigar containers, two folding knives, a pair of earplugs and an empty Crown Royal liquor bag were also in the bundle."The most unusual out there was a sawed off shotgun. This is used in committing major crimes," said Bob Carpenter of the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office."I feel threatened," said O’Connell."It's insane. It's insane. That's where she plays," said Hutton.Deputies say it's lucky O'Connell found the guns, not his daughter or her friends."Some kids could have got a hold of this and there could have been a very tragic ending here," said Carpenter.The sheriff’s office took all of the weapons away. They are fingerprinting each gun, trying to determine who put the guns there and why.Anyone with information on the items or who may have stashed them in the treehouse is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 780-TIPS. You can remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward.

    so they found a brick of .22LR that was almost half used, and less than a single box of WWB target loads... dramatize much?

    Well, what else do you use a sawed-off shotgun for? Probably not duck hunting. The only reason to saw it off is to make it lighter and easier to use in close-quarters.

    Out of my mind, brb never.
    I want to meet the retard who thought it was a good idea to hide guns and ammunition in a fucking treehouse. "Oh im sure kids dont play in this thing, let me stash some guns and ammo in here."


    "Oh fuck."

    Jesus, get a crate and bury that shit if you need to stash it.
