Homeowners in Arizona were gardening in their backyard Sunday when they unearthed a disturbing find: a buried duffel bag full of guns, authorities said.
Homeowners discovered the bag full of rusty rifles and pistols while digging a hole near the fence in their yard to plant a tree. The Phoenix Police Department said. After realizing what the bag contained, they immediately called the police.

“Why did you bury them there?” Enriquez said. “There must be a reason”.
The family has lived in the home for the past four years, AZFamily reported. Before that, it had been rented out to a number of individuals.
