CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada couple was found secretly keeping a cache of weapons and living with their two kids at a northern Nevada children’s museum where they worked, authorities said.

A janitor at the Children’s Museum of Northern Nevada was arrested late last week, KRNV-TV in Reno reported Friday. The 41-year-old man has been charged with child neglect and endangerment and possession of a suppressor and a short barrel rifle.

The article goes on to state the following:

Authorities discovered the arsenal in a storage room, they said. A police report listed an AK-47 rifle, three handguns, a pistol, ammunition, knives and a taser that could have been reached by a child. The stash also included drug paraphernalia like a bong and a used marijuana joint.

Police were tipped off when the man’s 2-year-old child was spotted walking nearby unsupervised. It wouldn’t be the first time the police interacted with the man over the child being left alone, however, this time the toddler’s older sister gave the deputies the museum as their address.

Police, along with a museum board member walked through the property and saw obvious signs people had taken up residence in there. Sleeping bags, mattresses, clothing, and food were some of the items found.

The janitor’s wife, a museum manager, was also living there; her identity was not divulged and it’s unknown if she’ll be facing any charges.
