WASHINGTON -- Law enforcement has arrested a 29-year-old male on weapons charges after discovering an arsenal of weapons and a shrine to Nazism in his Long Island home.​

Upon announcing the arrest of Edward Perkowski, local Suffolk County authorities said their police work "might have prevented a deadly, violent incident, like the one we recently saw in Orlando."

The cache of Nazi memorabilia included a book on white power, SS flags and hats, and a framed portrait of Adolf Hitler. He stockpiled ten assault rifles and several high-capacity magazines, and police also uncovered a stash of $40,000 in cash as well as a black binder filled with bomb-making instructions.
