SHARON, Conn. (AP) _ Authorities have removed a stockpile of military firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition from the northwest Connecticut house of a man who died earlier this month.

The Republican-American reports  that State Police came to George Laning’s house in Sharon after a friend found him dead March 8. The 59-year-old Laning died of unspecified natural causes days earlier.

Members of the state police Emergency Services Unit, the FBI and a team of Air Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal technicians from Westover Air Force Base in Chicopee, Mass., cataloged items including a 20 mm anti-tank gun on skis to AR-15s, grenades, bombs and a flamethrower. The equipment was removed by truck.

Laning was described as a reclusive man who shared his home with his father who died at age 94 in 2005.
