PHOENIX (AP) — Some homeowners in southwest Phoenix who were digging a hole for a tree in their backyard have found a duffel bag full of rusted rifles and handguns, according to authorities.

Phoenix police said the homeowners were digging in the corner of their fenced backyard Sunday when their shovels hit something in the dirt.

After finding the bag, they called police and handed over the weapons.

Police said they are investigating to see if the guns were used in any crimes and there’s no information yet on how long the weapons might have been buried.
