Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the origins and eventual abandonment of the vehicle. Investigators believe that the vehicle was being used to transport equipment and supplies, consistent with a fentanyl drug production operation.

A total of five heavily corroded firearms with ammunition were seized by police. Due to the degree of damage sustained by the exposure to the chemicals being transported in the rental vehicle, investigators believe they have seized 2 sawed off shotguns, and 3 rifles, including an AR15, a carbine C8 and an AK47.
