They had enough weapons to fight off ninjas or even “The Walking Dead.”

Three residents of a South Ozone Park home were cuffed by police on Thursday morning after cops found a small arsenal of weapons while raiding the residence, law enforcement sources said.

Officers from the 106th Precinct executed a court-authorized search of a one-story house on 123rd Street between Hawtree Creek Road and 115th Avenue at 6:05 a.m. on Dec. 8. The raid was the result of an ongoing investigation by the precinct’s Field Intelligence Unit.

During the search, police found a quantity of marijuana and pills as well as numerous weapons, including a .25-caliber Raven semi-automatic handgun; three rifle-style BB guns; a machete; and two tiger hook swords, commonly used in martial arts.

Three residents of the home were taken into custody: Khowaltie Argune, 48; Jason Nero, 21; and Hector Rentas, 20. All three were charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana.

The relationship between the three defendants was not disclosed.

A good example of why people no longer trust the media. The so called "arsenal to fight off ninjas" consists of toy guns, a bb gun and a jamomatic Raven. #rifle style bb guns....really? That orange tipped flintlock imitation is a toy. How about providing news without the hype?
