BROOKHAVEN - Police discovered assault rifles, ammunition and body armor while arresting a man at his home in Brookhaven yesterday.

Police say it started when Thomas Lippens, 24, threatened a security guard at a marina in Brookhaven. According to police, the guard refused to let Lippens and his parents in to the marine because they did not have the right key. When police tracked Lippens down, they found items including the loaded assault rifles, a bullet proof vest and drugs.
