Deputies Find Cache Of Weapons While Serving Child Porn Arrest Warrant

    In Navarro County, TX Sheriff’s deputies were serving an arrest warrant to 79-year-old Harvey Alex Strain for possession of child pornography. When they arrested him he had a loaded handgun on him. They searched his residence and found a cache of weapons. 45 firearms were discovered. Some of them possibly machine guns so the ATF were called in.

     

    Below is a photo of Strain.

    Here is the residence where they arrested him and found an arsenal of weapons.

    I am not familiar with the two beltfeds but the AR looks like it might have a 3rd pinhole.

    Another belt fed weapon.

    Some more AR15s and UZIs. One has a stock. Could it be an SBR or possibly a select fire UZI?

    This one is the most intriguing. It looks to be a USAS 12. A somewhat rare shotgun that is select fire. During the 90s Gilbert Equipment Co. tried to bring in semi-automatic versions of the USAS12 into the US. However Senator Bentsen deemed the USAS12 “having no sporting purpose” and they were not imported. So how Strain got his hands on one is very interesting.

    A shame such a collection of firearms belonged to a scumbag. Most likely these firearms will be destroyed if the Navarro County Sheriffs do not keep them. Unfortunately they will never be in the hands of civilians again. I wish there was a Gun Rescue program where law abiding citizens can rescue guns from bad homes.
