PONCHATOULA, La. (AP) - Authorities say they found 17 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition inside the home of a convicted felon who is banned from possessing firearms.

Senior State Trooper Dustin Dwight said in a news release Thursday that 61-year-old Edward Sutter of Ponchatoula has previously been convicted of felony domestic abuse battery.

Dwight says authorities executed a search warrant at Sutter’s home on Tuesday and found seven rifles, eight pistols and two shotguns. Dwight says they also found scopes and suppressors.
