When police found weapons in a Montgomery Street house a few weeks ago, neighbors thought it was a bad coincidence. But now after police found an anti-tank missile in the same home last night, they are terrified what other weapons maybe inside.

Ernestine Bulloch is the vice president of the Fowler Park Neighborhood Association. She has lived there for more than 30 years. "It's a nice neighborhood," she said. "I raised my kids out here and my grandkids out here, and then all of a sudden this."

Police were called to the house on Montgomery Street last night where they found a loaded a rocket launcher. It's the same house where military weapons were found on July 22, after a Dumpster exploded and rocked this midtown area. The two men who lived in the house are father and son Broderick and Brandon Dass, who were already in custody on other federal weapons charges.

Wilma Lowe was their landlady. She says they were good tenants until police found weapons in the house she owns for a second time. "I don't know, I just don't know, everything is a surprise to me," she said.

It seems to be a surprise to everyone in the neighborhood, especially Ernestine, who is afraid how close this violence has come to her home.

"You're talking about terrorism and stuff like that," she said. "It makes you afraid to go to sleep. This is close to home."

We spoke to ATF agents today and they say Brandon and Broderick Dass are still in custody, but no new charges have been filed after this latest incident. Also, the Fowler Park Neighborhood Association is having a meeting tonight to discuss what's been going on in their neighborhood.
