Police in Nha Trang, the capital city of Khanh Hoa Province in south-central Vietnam, have found and seized a large quantity of different weapons as they stormed a local house on Friday.

The inspection took place at around 4:30 pm, when hundreds of police officers raided a three-story house, whose first floor is disguised as a gear shop for travelers and bikers, on Tran Nguyen Han Street.

Officers then found a large number of weapons including Chinese broadswords, Japanese swords, bows, and fishing guns.

It took police more than two hours to classify and seal all of those weapons, with an officer speculating that the items could have been smuggled from the northern borders.

The identity of the weapon owner and the exact quantity of the items are undisclosed, according to Khanh Hoa police, which are further investigating the case.

Officers load the seized weapons onto their vehicle.
