Police in Jackson say 30 guns, including an old Thompson machine gun from the 1930s era, have been found in the home of a nurse caught dealing drugs.

According to a release from the U.S. Department of Justice, Anthony A. Calabrese, of Jackson, was charged with various drug-related offenses, as well as possession of firearms by a person previously convicted of a crime.

Authorities say they began investigating Calabrese back in July and sent an undercover agent to buy drugs from him.

The guns found include rifles, shotguns, handguns and the Thompson machine gun.

Other drug paraphernalia was also found at the home.
