A few minutes later the weapons were taken back inside the house.
Officers were directed to the home and a number of people were taken into custody.
A search uncovered multiple weapons including:

Russell Ducharme, 19 and a 17-year-old male from Grand Rapids face a number of weapons-related charges for their alleged involvement. The 17-year-old also was charged with Fail to Comply with Sentence.
Both were detained in custody.
Three others were released on a promise to appear. A 16-year-old female, a 22-year-old female and a 45-year-old female are facing weapons charges.
