According to the search warrant return filed today, James William Bowers kept an arsenal that included a 9- millimeter (Rooger) Ruger, a .357-Magnum, an automatic rifle and a pellet rifle... 14 guns in all.
Bowers was once convicted of assault and ordered to surrender all firearms.
Police obtained the warrant based on information from neighbors who said Bowers had shot at their dogs- -or threatened to- -before.
In addition to the guns and ammo, police seized a container of anti-freeze and some hamburger from Bowers' home.


They believe Bowers set meat out in neighbors' yards to entice the dogs, and that the meat was laced with anti-freeze.
