Deputies discovered a large amount of methamphetamine, an array of guns and money inside the garage of a Fort Bend County home.

Deputies were planning to recover a stolen vehicle at a home in Fresno on Monday, but when they arrived at the house, they looked through the window of the garage and spotted a substance that they believed was drugs.

The narcotics unit obtained a warrant to search the garage and confirmed that the substance was crystal meth. A more detailed search uncovered more than a dozen guns, a large amount of money and a stolen vehicle.
