2 arrested in California after 'cache of illegal material' to manufacture ghost guns recovered, police say

Two men were arrested in connection with ghost guns, untraceable, self-assembled firearms, that are often made with parts sold online. They are now the subject of new regulations announced by the Biden administration.

Two men were arrested and a "substantial cache of illegal material" to manufacture ghost guns was recovered in Southern California on Thursday, police said.

About 200 ghost gun frames, handgun slides, two assault weapons, a rifle, firearms magazines, ammunition and numerous parts and tools for manufacturing ghost guns were recovered as a result of an investigation by the Regional Illegal Firearms Trafficking Team (RIFTT), according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
