A lengthy investigation led to the discovery of a stockpile of so-called "ghost guns" and the arrest of a Long Island man, police said.
According to detectives, John Dejana, 47, of Port Washington, was the subject of the investigation by the FBI Long Island Joint Terrorism Task Force.
Investigators were able to secure a search warrant of his home and properties which they executed on Thursday, Oct. 3.

Approximately 3,000 thousand rounds of ammunition, a quantity of marijuana as well as a number of anabolic steroids were also discovered inside the residence.
Also recovered were five New York State “Non-Safe Act Compliant” assault rifles, 12 “Non- Safe Compliant Act” ammunition magazines, as well as four “Ghost Gun Building Kits.”
