Police arrest three men found with guns and gang paraphernalia

Three men are waking up behind bars this morning. Memphis police arrested them after finding a small arsenal in their car.

A resident at the Watkins Manor Apartments saw the men driving around the complex Thursday morning and called police. When investigators looked inside the car they found an assault rifle, a handgun, a 22 rifle, gang paraphenalia and duct tape. Police say it looked like the men were primed and ready to do something dangerous.

"So far we haven't been able to determine who the proposed victim would have been or what targets they had in mind", said Sergeant Vince Higgins. We're certainly concerned about what they may have been up to."

 The men are charged with illegal possession of a weapon. Police are also checking to see if they are connected to robberies in the area.
