"They were beside his bed, under the house, in the attic. Any location, if you can name a place in the house that is where guns were found."

Wooline admitted, on scene, to using and selling drugs in an interview with 13 News. He also said that he had the guns because he likes to shoot them, but has never hurt anyone with them.

Because of the large amount of evidence there is to process troopers said they expected to be on the scene for several hours.
