Deputies found real guns disguised as toys at the home of a man arrested on drug charges Wednesday.

On March 13 investigators with the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office, Hickory Police and the Newton Police executed a search warrant at a home on Old Catawba Road in Catawba after learning that narcotics were possibly at the location.

During the search, investigators seized quantities of cocaine, psilocybin mushrooms and marijuana. They also seized about $2,300 and twenty firearms, including pistols, rifles and shotguns.

One of the weapons, a converted Glock model 19 pistol with a 50-round drum magazine, had been altered to look like a toy Nerf gun.

While firearms like this are not illegal to possess, law enforcement says they’re especially concerning.

Catawba County Sheriff’s spokesman Capt. Aaron Turk said Burch was released on a $20,000 unsecured bond on Wednesday. Burch was formally advised of the charges against him at a first appearance in Catawba County District Court on Thursday.

Turk said he did not know when Burch’s next court date is or if he is represented by an attorney. He said investigators do not have a motive for why the gun was made to look like a Nerf toy.
