LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police in Las Vegas now say they seized 53 guns and two silencers in raids on a home and a medical marijuana dispensary owned by a man accused of operating an illegal pot delivery service.

Officer Larry Hadfield said Thursday the investigation involving Christopher McDermott is continuing, and may include federal agencies.

Clark County jail records show the 36-year-old McDermott is being held pending an initial court appearance on felony conspiracy, drug sale and trafficking charges.
