CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. --
Assault rifles, a loaded handgun and drugs were found in a camper on a Cambria County campground, according to police.
Warrants led police to the discovery and put three behind bars, but also put a two-year-old out of harms way.
Cambria County Sheriff's Deputies went to Woodland Campground in Cambria Township Tuesday to pick up two men who were wanted on warrants.
Police said they discovered five long rifles and one loaded handgun on Tuesday afternoon. They said none were licensed to the men staying there.
"We searched the premises and found multiple stolen weapons, drug paraphernalia, which was all in the reach of the 2-year-old child, Cambria Township Police Officer Andy Intihar said.
A toddler, that police said, was running around this same Woodland Campground camper.
"Loaded syringes, loaded guns, it was everywhere, Intihar said.
Police said Joshua Holliday and Daniel Taddy were wanted on warrants out of the Cambria County Sheriff's Department. Intihar said they were on the run for months.
Neighbors told 6News the two men had not been staying there long.
A third person, Whitney Norbin is facing child endangerment and drug charges. Police said she was the mother of the boy. Hes now in the custody of his grandmother.
"At any point in time those guns are volatile. If it would've knocked one of those guns over, it would've been bad, Intihar said. "The way that park is set up, they're so close that a round could go through the walls and kill somebody else.
Holliday and Taddy are in jail with a detainer. Police said more charges are expected to be filed when the investigation is over.
