What a haul... I bet there are some East Texas gun owners who are going to be very happy to see this news if they haven't already. 

Congratulations to the Mt Pleasant Police Department for the bust they made on Tuesday, September 13, when a traffic stop lead to a recovery of 26 stolen firearms, drugs, money, and two suspects.
