A raid on a property conducted by police in central Minnesota uncovered drugs, multiple guns, and even a cannon.

The CEE-VI Drug and Gang Task Force executed the drugs search warrant Monday morning at a home on the 17000 block of Hwy. 15 near Dassel.

It was there they arrested two people, a 59-year-old man and a 56-year-old woman, after they found methamphetamine, marijuana, and what they suspect is LSD.

What's more, they found "numerous firearms, surveillance cameras and what appeared to be a functioning cannon."

The arrested pair are facing charges of 1st-degree controlled substance offenses and firearms related charges.
