MIAMI -- A representative of the Goodwill store in the 2100 block of Northwest 21st Street in Miami called police Thursday to report a somewhat unusual donation.
When officers arrived, they found dozens of weapons, including knives, swords, handguns, rifles and real-looking toy guns had been donated to the charity store.
Investigators said some of the weapons were loaded and in good condition. Others were old and rusted.
Among the weapons was a rifle made in 1869.
Miami police said they plan to dispose of the weapons safely.
It is not known who donated the weapons or where they came from.
