Guilty plea from man who had cache of weapons in Point Loma home

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man who kept a cache of weapons at his Point Loma apartment -- including an AK-47 assault rifle and 5,000 rounds of ammunition - pleaded guilty Tuesday to three felony counts, including possession of a deadly weapon and possession of a destructive device.

Fred Seeber, 59, was arrested Nov. 9 in connection with the discovery of 18 rifles, a submachine gun, four explosive devices, 14 handguns and the ammunition.

According to a search warrant affidavit, the weapons were found when Harbor Police Sgt. Mike Rich went to Seeber's home last July to investigate allegations that the defendant's roommate had stolen a cell phone from her ex-boyfriend.

Officers armed with a search warrant stormed Seeber's home in November and seized the weapons and ammunition.

None of the guns were registered, and police determined that Seeber was an ex-felon with a 1977 conviction for robbery.

Seeber - whose attorney says the conviction was removed from the defendant's record in 2010 - said the firearms were part of a collection that he inherited from his family.

Sentencing was set for May 14.
