Four men were arrested on Thursday after police raided their Kensington apartment and discovered a 9-mm rifle, a semi-automatic handgun, two revolvers, eight swords, a machete, nunchakus, knives, air pistols, and assorted drugs. Bashkim Sylmetaj, 36, Michael Symetaj, 42, Adem Sylmetaj, 38, and Zenaida Vaysberg, 32, were each charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana. “It was enough to arm a small army or militia,” said a police source. “These guys were ready for war.” The government may have a plan for the zombie apocalypse, but you can never be too prepared.
