A call from a drunken man led German police officers to a secret Nazi altar, filled with memorabilia, weapons and even pictures of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, German police reported.

The 53-year-old man had called from his apartment Tuesday night asking for help. Responding, police arrived at his apartment and found a large arsenal of weapons, including knives and firearms, as well as an altar-like structure filled with Nazi iconography.

The man was taken to the hospital. The following day, police searched the apartment in his presence. 

Police confiscated, among other things, a belt of ammunition, two knives, a butterfly knife and three brass knuckles – two of which had blades.

It is currently unclear where the weapons came from. The man has no criminal record.
