Large Weapon Stash Found In Barnstable Home

BARNSTABLE (WBZ) ― State and Barnstable police raided a home in Marstons Mills Tuesday afternoon, pulling a stash of weapons out of the house, police officials said.

According to State police, officials executed a search warrant at the home of 44-year-old Kenneth A. Webster, who was believed to be in possession of dozens of illegal firearms.

SkyEye over the scene captured images of dozens of firearms placed on a massive green tarp as investigators scoured the scene.

Police said they raided the property when they knew Webster was not home because when police served a restraining order on him earlier this month, he was armed with illegal weapons.

Police said Webster was at his parents' home in Marstons Mills when his house was raided Tuesday afternoon. Officials said while he was polite and cooperative, he denied police would find any guns on his property.

Police found both large and small caliber weapons and ammunition, including 14 handguns, 40 rifles, a .50 caliber sniper rifle, and over 1,000 rounds of ammunition. Among the weapons, police said they found a .50 caliber Smith Wesson handgun and numerous assault rifles with large capacity magazines. A 50-pound bag of black powder was also recovered.

Webster was arrested and charged with 10 counts of unlawful possession of a firearm and one count of unlawful possession of ammunition. Additional charges are expected to be filed. Police are investigating how Webster, who does not have a valid license to carry a firearm, got the guns and ammunition.

Police raided Webster's home after a three-week investigation into his illegal possession of the high-powered firearms. When asked about possessing firearms without a valid permit, police said Webster's response was that "the Constitution of the United States allowed him to bear arms thus he did not need any permit."
