KHQ.COM - Two people are behind bars in Missouri after police found a stockpile of assault rifles, handguns and ammunition in their hotel room outside of St. Louis.

St. Clair County Deputies responded to a tip at a Motel 6 last week. Two suspects, Shawn Holland and Cara Anderson, were staying in the room and have now been charged in the case.

Deputies say they found several assault rifles, multiple handguns, dozens of fully loaded 30 round magazines and thousands of rounds of loose rifle ammunition. None of the guns found had serial numbers.

Police say the suspects were buying the guns in pieces.

The couple's motive is not yet known. Local law enforcement is still not sure if this couple could have been planning some sort of attack, but they are continuing to investigate.
