TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Tempe police say they found a number of weapons at the bottom of Tempe Town Lake when it was drained last month.

Police say they recovered a knife and three pistols, one of which was stolen, as well as part of another pistol when the lake was empty.

Officers say they are looking into the firearms to see if they were used in any other crime.

The lake was emptied in March to complete construction on a new hydraulically operated steel-gate dam that replaces an inflatable rubber system. It is now being refilled.
